Summary Excerpt Comments

"A highly addictive book. Gripping, powerful, laugh-out-loud funny, painfully sad. Archer is a writer with a big future."
(James Frey - A Million Little Pieces, My Friend leonard)

"A Dark, twisted, bitingly funny novel. Everyone should read it."
(Jonathan Maberry - Patient Zero, Ghost Road Blues)

Sandwiched between obnoxious coworkers who reek of burnt popcorn and cheap perfume, Michael O’Donnell is a short step away from a total meltdown. Recently promoted in a career that is destroying him, Michael escapes the stress of his nightmarish world by embarking on a self-destructive journey through Philadelphia’s sexual underground.

As his dangerous behavior takes him through Philadelphia strip clubs and massage parlors, all the way to swingers resorts and nude beaches, Michael is forced to confront a darkness he has harbored for years, one that will release a hatred and a quest for vengeance. It is this realization that can either save him from future misery or swallow him whole.

Darkly comic, extremely raw, and unexpectedly poignant, Burnt Popcorn and Cheap Perfume chronicles one man’s quest to escape not only a career that is driving him insane but also his growing addiction and his thirst for vengeance against the father who brutally betrayed him.

This is a novel for anyone who has ever felt trapped in a job and a life they could not escape.
