Summary Potboiler

Lost at sea Pfefferkorn is torn between envy and grief for de Vallèe not only outshone Pfefferkorn professionally but married the woman Pfefferkorn loved Pfefferkorn’s decision to reconnect with POTBOILER by Jesse Kellerman I haven't read Jesse Kellerman's previous novels which appear to be complex thrillers but based on the cleverness he demonstrates in POTBOILER I'm very interested in reading of his work POTBOILER cannot be easily categorized It's an affectionate parody of the thriller genre but it functions eually well as a thriller in its own right However ridiculous and implausible the twists and turns this novel kept me chuckling at Kellerman's gentle mocking of his own genre while at the same time biting my nails in anticipation I couldn't help but laugh at myself and how swept up in the absurd action I becameArthur Pfefferkorn is a college professor with one critically acclaimed novel far far in his past He's avoided his oldest friend William de Vallee for years jealous of his wife and his bestselling oeuvre of thrillers while contemptuous of the non literary genre When de Vallee disappears and is declared dead Pfefferkorn takes a reckless step that pulls him into a world of international intrigue conspiracy and double crosses To rescue de Vallee's widow with whom he is still in love he takes on a shadowy assignment from a uestionable government agency and ventures into Zlabia an utterly absurd nation divided into two entirely different cultures Zlabia is a hoot and it's to Kellerman's credit that I remained engaged in the action despite the ridiculous aspects of Zlabian politicsTo point out the cleverest twists would be to spoil the unfolding plot This is a book I will recommend to everyone I know just so I can talk about it with someone and say Wasn't it perfect when Pfefferkorn said X and then Y happened later A devoted thriller fan who sees nothing amusing in the conventions of the genre will not enjoy this book but anyone who read say THE DA VINCI CODE and rolled her eyes at the stilted prose and pat descriptions while frantically turning the pages to see what happens next will adore POTBOILER I am even willing to confess my secret addiction to Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt novels to illustrate my ualifications in making this recommendation The over the top writing drives me a little crazy and the stereotypes and predictable elements reuired of the genre make me roll my eyes; yet I can't not read themWhen Pfefferkorn finally reads a de Vallee novel he is contemptuousThe thirty third installment in a series the novel featured special agent Richard Dick Stapp a brilliant physically invincible figure formerly in the employ of a shadowy but never named government arm whose apparent sole purpose was to furnish story lines for thrillers Pfefferkorn recognized the formula easily enough Stapp supposedly in retirement finds himself drawn into an elaborate conspiracy involving one or of the following an assassination a terrorist strike a missing child or the theft of highly sensitive documents that if made public could lead to full blown nuclear engagement His involvement in the case often begins against his will I've had it with this rotten business he is fond of avowing Who in real life Pfefferkorn wondered avowed anythingThis over the top language turns up in elements of POTBOILER that highlight its absurdity as in the fabulous description of a character's mustache Pfefferkorn could not tell his age due to a full eighty percent of his face being hidden behind the largest bushiest most aggressively expansionist moustache Pfefferkorn had ever seen It was a a with submoustaches that in turn had sub submoustaches each of which might be said to be deserving of its own area code It was a moustache that vexed profoundly uestions of waxing a moustache the merest glimpse of which might spur female musk oxen to ovulate It was a moustache that would have driven Nietzsche mad with envy had he not been mad already If the three most copiously flowing waterfalls in the world Niagara Victoria and Iguazu Falls were somehow united and their combined outputs rendered in facial hair this man's moustache would not have been an inaccurate model save that this man's moustache also challenged traditional notions of gravity by growing outward upward and laterally It was an impressive moustache and Pfefferkorn was impressedPfefferkorn is fond of coming up with outlandish ideas and wondering if they might be good premises for a novel Naturally these wild plot developments turn up in the Zlabian intrigue Throughout commentary on the Zlabian hit show The Poem It Is Bad and the magical disguising power of mustaches the overly complicated plot unfolds with precision in ways that are both predictable and unexpected This is a masterful satire of the thriller genre but at the same time a fantastic thriller It might be the ultimate beach readSource disclosure I received an uncorrected

Arthur Pfefferkorn is a has been or perhaps a never was a middle aged college professor with long dead literary aspirations When his oldest friend bestselling thriller writer William de Vallèe is First my apologies to Jesse Kellerman I had to put this book down after 206 pages I encountered this book a couple of times over the last few weeks and never uite got to the point of buying it When I finally did buy it and began reading I realized my instincts were pretty good I should have left it on the shelfA world famous thriller series author is declared dead after a boating accident An old friend who never found the same success writing attends his funeral and while at the deceased's home steals his final unpublished manuscript The thief then brushes up the writing changes a few things to make it his own then publishes it The novel becomes a huge hit Everybody's happy However the thief is then made aware that what the dead writer was actually doing was publishing books written by an intelligence agency as instructions and orders for field agents The changes the thief made to the manuscript altered the mission Things did not go as originally planned I read the first 127 pages of this novel in one sitting Literally one sitting It was hugely entertaining and very very funny The dialogue was pitch perfect There were snarky pithy comments about the publishing business I learned a great deal and in several instances had my suspicions confirmed about publishing in general The author was obviously very smart; and along with an interesting insightful tale was also giving me a little nudge nudge wink wink and it was all superb Right up to the scene where the thief is told Tag You're itThen the book became a satire of an espionage thriller Like a Mad magazine parody of the TV series Alias On second thought it's like a parody of a parody of an espionage thriller It reads like a Mad magazine satire of the TV series Get Smart With old mustaches left over from The Carol Burnett Show Really I had been hoodwinked After 206 I just couldn't take it anyI am now going to read a couple of real series thrillers of the men's adventure type to get my mojo back
