#NewRelease – ON TOP OF THE WORLD by David Lamb

About the Book
 
2016 BEST FICTION-Pacific Book Awards. FROM THE FUNNY AND NATURALLY BRILLIANT DAVID LAMB, award-winning playwright of the New York Times celebrated play, Platanos Y Collard Greens, comes a modern spin on Dickens’ classic tale that perfectly combines humor and romance in a story re-imagined for our digital, consumerist age.  
 
This version of Scrooge and Belle is familiar, yet unlike any you’ve come across before. Scrooge, or rather Scrooje, is music’s biggest superstar, with one hundred million albums sold, fifteen million devoted YouTube subscribers, two and a half million Facebook likes, and twenty-five million fanatical Twitter followers known as Scroojites. Belle, is a legal shark who gulps down her opposition voraciously and whose beauty and stunning figure causes traffic accidents as she zips through the
sidewalks of Manhattan stylishly adorned and taking no prisoners.   They
never imagined being music’s most powerful couple, but that’s exactly what
happened when Belle fell head over heels and gave the Coke-bottle glasses
wearing, plaid and stripe attired, scrawny, biggest nerd on her college campus
the ultimate makeover, turning him into a fashion impresario whose style sets
trends from Milan to NY Fashion Week and who can be seen courtside at the NBA
Finals sporting a perfectly-fitted cashmere suit.   Then it happens. Belle
realizes too late that she’s created a chart-topping monster as Scrooje’s ego
explodes and he starts acting a fool.   Now, it’s been three years since
they ve spoken. But tonight at Hollywood s biggest red carpet event, with the
whole world watching, they’ll be given a second chance.   Will Scrooje
listen to the ghostly-advice of Marley, his best friend since the fourth grade,
who at the time of his untimely drowning at his Brazilian poolside birthday
bash was as big a star as Scrooje? Will Scrooje finally do right by his number
one artist, Cratchit, a genius comedian, who Scrooje invariably rip offs every
chance he gets?   And with twenty-five million viewers tuned in will
Scrooje finally shed his ego, jeopardize his image and declare his love for
Belle, the one he betrayed and let slip away?   Second chances don’t often
come around. Will Belle even give him a chance?  
 
 Mixing heart, soul, bling and romance in a
fresh, original satire about race, class and celebrity worship Lamb establishes
himself as one of the most talented and amazing writers today. And leaves no
doubt that the Pacific Book Awards chose wisely when they selected On Top Of
The World as the year’s Best Fiction.

Author Bio

David Lamb is a native New Yorker, born and raised, bitten with the writing bug since he was in elementary school and had handwriting nobody could decipher. Like Charles Dickens, David grew up a poor boy in the big city who found that the pen really is mightier than the sword. In middle school Lamb’s hero was David Lampel whose velvet voice could be heard reporting the news over David’s grandmother’s radio. Whenever he heard him on the radio, David would substitute Lamb for Lampel and pretend he was delivering the news. Sure that he was destined to be a famous reporter David was happy to go to a
high school with a journalism program. Like most kids, by the time he finished
high school he had a whole new career in mind. After high school he went to
Hunter College and majored in Economics because he wanted to be cool like that
college kid who came to speak at his last year of high school. He was an
Economics major, he was dressed sharp and above-all the girls thought he was
the man! So like any unreasonable high school boy fueled by overactive hormones
David figured if he majored in Economics they’d think he was cool. After
finishing college David went on to law school at NYU, but all the time writing
was still his heart. While working as a lawyer by day, at night he transformed
into a writer and eventually wrote and produced the award-winning hit
off-Broadway romantic comedy Platanos Y Collard Greens. Being a writer and
having the chance make people laugh out loud while challenging them to think
about the world around them, and inspire each of us to believe in the power of
love and our own ability to overcome life’s challenges is a great gift that
David truly enjoys and thanks you for allowing him to share with you in On Top
Of The World (Until The Bell Chimes)
