Charles Frankhauser

about this book: This book is fiction that reveals the origins of the publishing industry. The storyline presents the difficulties facing many authors in relation to obtaining representation for their works.

This author's experiences as a writer form the basis of the storyline; he attempted to publish a memoir without prior knowledge of the processes involved.

The secrets of bestseller writing are conveyed by a character in the novel. The protagonist is a naive young taxi driver working night shifts with his dog before moving to New York City as a Certified Senior Slush Pile Inspector.

The primary readers of this work are writers attempting to become authors. Several pre-publication readers remarked on the humor embedded in nearly every episode of the work.

The protagonist is unaware that literary agents exist until a motorcycle riding poet forces him into representing OPEN ROAD HOG POEMS. A series of episodes present learning how-to represent the work of a bestselling author, how-to become a campaign literary agent for a Presidential election, how-not-to found a literary agency, and the difficulties of acting in a Hollywood funded production filmed by art students.

The cover presents in three words the fate of many manuscripts: "Slush Pile" and the "Inspector" relates to a secret vocation practiced in large New York City publishers' basements where an army of Inspectors toils away resubmitting rejected manuscripts back upstairs to editors' in-baskets during the late-night hours. The protagonist shares his secrets of how to meet women at publishers' penthouse parties before he relates the story of his working-life as a literary agent.
