Daniel Urban, a Penn State–educated community man from a small working-class Pennsylvania town now living in Connecticut with his wife and fulfilling his writing dreams, has completed his new book “Grow Up Already”: a thought-provoking novel where social classes fight it out in the political arena.

Author Urban demonstrates his main character’s particular brand of genius with pop culture: “The curtains on the alcove windows above the large oak desk are drawn. Inside the main area of the study, among the tall bookshelves, Theodore ‘Furshizzle’ Graham, in his khaki cargo shorts and comfortable button-down shirt, sits in a black leather recliner. Jeopardy is on the television. Wayne Arnold, a white kid with dreadlocks, kneels on the floor in front of the other recliner. He’s rolling a joint on the coffee table.
‘Who is Edward R. Murrow?’ Theodore says as Wayne looks at the television to see if Theodore is correct.
‘What is string theory?’ Theodore says. Wayne again looks at the television.
‘Who is Louis Pasteur?’
Shaking his head, Wayne says, ‘Damn, Mr. Graham, you haven’t gotten one wrong yet. You should go on that show. You would kick some ass.’
‘I’m more of a Press Your Luck kind of guy, no Whammies, big bucks.’”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Daniel Urban’s new book is a provocative thought experiment in narrative form exploring how much a working-class man can change the political and social landscape when given the chance. Irreverent, gutsy, and charming, Teddy Graham becomes the perfect agent for such an experiment.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Grow Up Already” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
