Foul Matter

by Grimes, Martha

The bestselling author of the Richard Jury novels delivers a razor-sharp and raucously funny send-up of the cutthroat world of publishing. And the praise is pouring in:

"A hilarious and wicked caper-adventure on the evils of the book business."
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Does laughing uncontrollably on a subway train constitute legitimate literary criticism? If it does, then Foul Matter...gets a great review from me." —New York Times Book Review

"She can kick literary butt—in more ways than one." —USA Today
