No DJ can mix 'Celebration' into 'Come On Eileen' quite like Paul Johnson, the king of rancid retro. But while he has the musical jumper cables to get even the most dismal party started, he can't get his own life moving. Trapped in a job he despises, a perpetual failure with the ladies and living at home with his distinctly unhelpful parents, Paul's stuck in limbo while everyone around him is limbo-dancing.  As Paul learns, sometimes it is easier to joke about failure than to actually write that hit song or lean forward and kiss that girl who has been your best friend's girlfriend all these years. A romantic comedy that's equal parts bitingly cynical and na‹vely idealistic, this is a story for anyone who's ever hit the Pause button on their life, and found it hard to press Play again.

About the Author:

Dominic Knight is a television writer.

From Booklist:

Knight, a founding member of a popular Australian satiric comedy group, turns in a surprisingly sweet first novel about 25-year-old Sydney resident Paul Johnson. Although he graduated from law school, Paul can’t face joining the rat race and has spent the past two years spinning records as a DJ, “the king of rancid retro.” The fact that he is still living at home with his parents, coupled with his ineffectual way with the ladies, is taking a serious toll on his self-esteem, so when a law firm offers him a position, he reluctantly accepts. Then his gregarious, ambitious friend Nige introduces him to pretty attorney Felicity, but Paul hesitates and winds up sleeping with a much younger party girl, despite the fact that she is a big fan of Kylie Minogue. He confides all of his romantic troubles to his best friend, the smart and funny Zoe. Knight imbues his comic hero with a refreshing sense of self-deprecation, an infectious love of music, and a sensitive streak, all while providing an entertaining tour of Sydney’s nightlife. A lighthearted look at an endearing young man’s search for love. --Joanne Wilkinson
