Timothy’s Take-Out – The “Seabiscuit” of Humorous Novels

Share Article

Books from humble publishing houses, written and edited by fledgling authors, aren’t supposed to be this good. If “Timothy’s Take-Out” isn’t inspiring fear among established writers of fiction, it oughta be!

Written about an underdog, by an underdog – for underdogs – “Timothy’s Take-Out” is affecting people in a most unexpected manner. There was a time author Paul J. Barker doubted his book would get published, let alone compared favorably to “The Catcher In The Rye.” But now readers are emailing him declaring their love for various characters, inquiring if a sequel is in the works, and wondering if any major movie studios have gotten wind of the book.

The reasons for “Timothy’s Take-Out’s” success are actually pretty obvious; the novel is unique, well written, tells a great story, and its climactic scenes seem to come out of left field. It is ostensibly the coming-of-age story of Carl Fellows, a reclusive loser who drops out of college to take a job at a fast food joint. Although he comes to hate pretty much everything about his new job, he can’t help but notice it's making him one tough S.O.B. He channels his rage into various productive avenues, but alas – it’s as if the loser within won’t allow him to succeed.

Love him or hate him, it appears that cocky little Seabiscuit– er… Paul J. Barker, is here to stay. “Timothy’s Take-Out” is selling briskly, and Barker is currently putting the final touches on a second novel. Imaginative plots and beautiful prose characterize his books, a mélange that is proving irresistible to readers around the world.

A few clicks of the mouse, and a copy of this delightful novel could be winging its way to your doorstep. “Timothy’s Take-Out” (ISBN # 1-4137-3164-3) is available through most any online bookstore, or drop by the author’s website, http://www.dontlikemyjob.com. Barker would like to take this opportunity to thank his growing legion of fans for their support, and wishes to inform everyone that his second novel, “Life On Umbriel,” will be released in a few short months.
