AB802 My Inflatable Friend


Stuart Appleton reads from our show host Gerald Everett Jones's satirical novel My Inflatable Friend. This silly book is the first in his trilogy The Misadventures of Rollo Hemphill. The audiobook is available from Audible, and the book as paperback or ebook from booksellers. #amwriting #selfpub #podcast #humor #satire (Music by Audionautix.com)

Boychik lit??!! A car jockey at a luxury hotel in Beverly Hills, youthful hacker-turned-slacker Rollo Hemphill devises a screwball scheme for making his girlfriend jealous. Through a silly but magical ruse, our hero gets everything he’s dreamed about — a celebrity job as a drive-time shock-jock, a wardrobe from Armani, use of a luxurious Malibu beach house, and a shiny red sports car. What he can’'t possibly get is any sex at all — or the one girl he really wants. She thinks he’s a gigolo and a phony, but he can’'t tell her the truth or she’ll know he’s just a jerk whose only friend in the world is a life-sized sex toy. To get his genuine heart’s desire, Rollo must admit to her that his prank was a mistake, undo its hurtful consequences, and make some sobering decisions about what’s really important in life.
