After all, where does anyone get their ideas from? Titan Books announce the release next month of All My Colors by David Quantick...
March 1979, DeKalb Illinois.
Todd Milstead is a wannabe writer, a serial adulterer, and a jerk, only tolerated by his friends because he throws the best parties with the best booze. During one particular party, Todd is showing off his perfect recall, quoting poetry and literature word for word plucked from his eidetic memory. When he begins quoting from a book no one else seems to know, a novel called ALL MY COLORS, Todd is incredulous. He can quote it from cover to cover and yet it doesn’t seem to exist.
With a looming divorce and mounting financial worries, Todd finally tries to write a novel, with the vague idea of making money from his talent. The only problem is he can’t write. But the book – ALL MY COLORS – is there in his head. Todd makes a decision: he will “write” this book that nobody but him can remember. After all, if nobody’s heard of it, how can he get into trouble?
As the dire consequences of his actions come home to both Todd and his long-suffering friends, it becomes clear that there is a high – and painful – price to pay for his crime.
Fans of Chuck Palahniuk, Drew Magary and John Niven will delight in this fast-paced and no holds barred read that leaves no man unscathed.
DAVID QUANTICK is an Emmy-winning television writer for such shows as Veep, The Thick of It and The Day Today. He is the author of Sparks, The Mule, two writing manuals, How To Write Everything and How To Be A Writer.
