Young, struggling writer Rob Lannatta discovers himself to be the subject of a series of voyeuristic videos on their way to becoming viral. When he and his money-grubbing literary agent try to capitalize on the attention in order to catapult Rob onto bestseller lists, the duo inadvertently upends everything in Rob’s life. Shortly into their misadventure, they begin to fear that they have fallen into a trap set by the woman who recorded the videos: Rob’s vindictive ex-girlfriend, Ariel Dylan.
P. K. Warren carries readers through Rob’s odd and comical tale atop whimsical, skipping prose, delivering barbed commentary and bangs of insight around every corner. Hilarious and ultimately heartbreaking, Modern American Heroes takes a hard look at celebrity life, social media, and how quickly things can get out of hand.
