Talk: Choose Your Own Misery

The book applies the choose-your-own-adventure formula to the soul-crushing daily work routine of one hungover office worker. We see that, while choosing your own adventure may be great when you're young, in the adult world, the only options available are endless varieties of misery. Mike MacDonald spent four years as a contributing writer with America's Finest News Source, The Onion while simultaneously working as a journalist at Canada's largest newspaper chain. Jilly Gagnon has written humor, news, essays, and op-ed pieces for Newsweek, Elle, Vanity Fair, The Huffington Post, McSweeney's Internet Tendency, The Onion, The Toast, and The Dig.
