Clancy Martin''s critically acclaimed debut novel about a pair of brothers working the counter of a Dallas jewelry store is a veritable handbook of cons and dirty deals -- A Mamet-ish piece of intelligent noir that''s perfect for paperback.
Annotation:
Teenage Bobby shows up in Dallas still wet behind the ears, eager to help his older brother in the jeweler business, and see the bright lights of the big city. Next thing he knows, he's snorting rails of cocaine, involved in a million crooked deals, and sleeping with his brother's mistress, Lisa. Clancy Martin, a professor of philosophy with a special concentration in the ethics of advertising, has written the rare debut novel that is debauched and loveable in equal doses--as sexy as it is smart. Selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the 100 Best Books of 2009.

Praise

"Reading this is like watching one man's American dream turn into a soul-sucking nightmare....[A] sexy, funny and devastating debut." (starred review) 02/23/2009

"HOW TO SELL...is certainly...very well-written....[T]he book's various exposed fiddles...could not resonate more strongly with the convoluted hedge-fund acrobatics and Ponzi-scheme skullduggery...plaguing both the real economy and the collective imagination. All in all, it's a winning combination: HOW TO SELL will sell." - Tom McCarthy 05/17/2009

"Most of HOW TO SELL is a bravura catalog of the scams and rackets that make up the luxury jewelry trade as the Clarks practice it, leavened by the occasional dash of fisticuffs or gunplay....HOW TO SELL is like a James Ellroy novel for people... who read Spinoza's ETHICS." - Laura Miller 05/26/2009

"Clancy Martin's darkly bewitching first novel....[is] about the stubbornly untransactional nature of love, and the difficulty we have in fully closing the deal." - Jennifer Schuessler 06/11/2009
