Product description

Product Description

MAD MEN.  DRIVEN WOMEN.  WHAT COULD GO WRONG? 

In ADLANDIA, the men and women are talented, ambitious and self-obsessed.
 
They dream of success -- of their ads appearing on television, billboards and on the screens of a billion smartphones. They tell themselves the exhausting hours are worth it, and the disappointments merely temporary. But when success fails to arrive, dark surreal comedy steps in instead. 

Follow ten people struggling to succeed in the bizarre other-world of the big advertising agencies. As their careers fail to launch, some try to coax help from the universe. Others make deals with the devil. One travels back in time to the Man Men days of the 1950s. 

Sometimes they succeed. 

Readers describe ADLANDIA as, "An absolute blast," and "a mixture of Mad Men, Stephen King and Roald Dahl's Tales of The Unexpected."

If you love advertising, or loathe it, if you work in the business, or are curious about it, you'll love the characters and excruciating predicaments in ADLANDIA. 

So pick up a pencil, smooth out your layout pad, and click the link to go to ADLANDIA now!
