I came across Mark Svartz at his book signing in New York. What a character and creative writing superstar. Starting out in the advertising world as a copywriter, Svartz has wowed the world with this unique diary book, I Hate You Kelly Donahue, written through the eyes of his own persona.

The character in the book hates the new girl in the office, Kelly Dohanue, and aspires to kill her every day. This is written with the wit and candor of a comic book and with the underlying rawness and comedy of Scott Pilgram Vs The World and Kick Ass.
