Editorial Reviews


Life as a Sandwich wasn t just entertaining it really kept me turning pages. This may be the best, funniest business novel of the year. -- --Scott Kyle, Author of The Power Curve; CEO of Coastwise Capital Group; Co-Founder of The Active Network

Peterson's hilarious portrayal of life in a struggling start-up has the extraordinary ring of truth throughout. I loved this page turner, you will too. --Tim Templeton, Author of The Referral of a Lifetime

From the Back Cover

The backdrop for this hilarious novel is the sprawling, colorful, bursting-at-the seams megalopolis of San Diego—a picture-postcard setting with a seamy underside, where blind ambition and entrepreneurial zeal blur boundaries of law, common sense, and decency. Protagonist Wallace Noe and his wife, Hannah, are card-carrying members of the sandwich generation: squeezed between raising children and looking after an elderly parent, struggling to make ends meet—and to keep their marriage together. When a family tragedy forces Wallace to reevaluate his life, he stakes his future on a start-up company and the values and work ethics of his father's generation, never imagining the sequence of events that will shatter his comfortable world. With sharp humor and masterly insight, author Eric Peterson dishes up a rollicking account of California's modern-day gold rush—the heady times of the high-tech boom, when stories of mind-boggling riches are commonplace and everyone wants a bigger piece of the pie. In "Life as a Sandwich," Peterson delivers more than a romp of a novel. It's a devastatingly funny look at one man's quest for identity—and the unforgettable cast of characters that threatens to turn a crusade for redemption into a staggering, personal defeat.
