Join in the Fun! A WOW! Women on Writing Book Blog Tour for David Kalish's Debut Novel: The Opposite of Everything

Dear Friends,          

Read on! I’ve booked another fabulous WOW! Blog tour beginning at The Muffin Monday, April 21st running through May 21st. We would love to stop at your blog as part of this tour! Details below!
I am super excited to introduce you to a friend of mine. David Kalish is an all around great guy and I’m quite happy to also call him ‘friend’. Before I tell you about his new release, let me share a bit more about him:

Author Bio: David Kalish is a fiction writer, screenwriter and playwright whose debut novel, The Opposite of Everything, will be released on March 11, 2014 by WiDo Publishing. 
The Opposite of Everything grew out of his studies at the Bennington College Writing Seminars, where he earned his MFA. His short fiction has been published in numerous literary journals, his non-fiction in the Writer’s Chronicle, and a short film of his, "Regular Guy," won honors in film festivals here and abroad. Before Bennington, he was an editor and reporter at The Associated Press, and his articles have appeared in major newspapers. He is currently working on a second novel, entitled Stoner Hero, and a theatre script for a Latin version of A Christmas Carol. He lives in upstate New York with his wife, daughter, two dogs, and two canaries.

More About: The Opposite of Everything 

Debut Novel Explores Comic Side of Tragedy 
Inspired by his own brush with cancer and divorce, author David Kalish makes comedy out of his past in his debut novel, The Opposite of Everything.

Equal parts love story and Job-like allegory, The Opposite of Everything traces the hilarious descent of a man stricken with disease, divorce, and an oversupportive father – and the contrarian strategy he uses to resurrect himself.

When Brooklyn journalist Daniel Plotnick learns he has cancer, his fortunes fall faster than you can say “Ten Plagues of Egypt.” His wife can’t cope, his marriage ends in a showdown with police, and his father accidentally pushes him off the George Washington Bridge.

Plotnick miraculously survives his terrifying plunge --and comes up with a crazy plan to turn his life around: by doing the opposite of everything he did before.

Paperback: 250Pages
Publisher: WiDo Publishing
