Trent Tucker, the protagonist of this hilarious satire, hates Reality TV. Unfortunately, his job involves the creation of new Reality shows that are even more outrageous and excessive than those now on television. Surrounded by colleagues who could easily be characters in their own reality show Trent dives headlong into a world filled with incessant bickering, back stabbing co-workers, deserted islands, and maybe a murder plot or two as the employees feverishly try to create new and better shows for their anxious network clients. It is a journey Trent will never forget -- if he manages to survive it. Reality: It is a first novel by stand-up comic Jeff Havens.
