About this title

Synopsis:

A moderately successful professional golfer attempts to handle the pressures of being a front-runner in a championship tournament

From the Back Cover:

"Dan Jenkins is a comic genius."
--Don Imus

Praise for Dead Solid Perfect:

"This is vintage Jenkins--profane, outrageous, and sharp-eyed in its parody of the overblown world of big-time golf. It is also distinguished by a climactic golf match that may be the funniest scene he's ever written."
--Newsweek

"Dan Jenkins is the nearest thing to Ring Lardner this generation has ever seen. No one has captured the essential lunacy of the twentieth-century sports (and TV) scene as accurately and hilariously as this."
--Los Angeles Times

"Jenkins is hilarious, providing more laughs per page than any other writer in the 'bidness.'"
--People
