Baker & Taylor
Taking an embarrassing job in New York that sharply contrasts with his ambitions, a London literary agent meets a legendary novelist at an AA meeting and begins enjoying success and popularity, a situation throughout which he hides the truth about not being an alcoholic. 20,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave

Part Nick Hornby, part Jay McInerney, with a dash of vermouth, In the Rooms is a warm, sharply observed comedy about sex, lies, drinking, and second chances

London literary agent Patrick Miller comes to New York dreaming of joining the big league, only to find himself selling celebrity dog books. But when he spots legendary novelist Douglas Kelsey on the street and follows him into an AA meeting, a world of opportunity beckons. Who knew that sobriety offered such networking possibilities? Or that the women would be so attractive? Soon he's a regular attendee at AA meetings, but there's only one problem—he's not an alcoholic.
