Rejected Taglines For My Publishers Marketplace Announcement

Daniel Friedman's DON'T EVER GET OLD:

"The book Michael Chabon might have written if he wasn't busy working on something much better."

"Pitched as late Philip Roth meets 'The Maltese Falcon,' but with worse writing."

"Kind of like 'Are you there, God? It's Me, Margaret,' only it's about death instead of puberty."

"Taking advantage of the obvious counter-trend to the market glut of young-adult fiction."

"Dares to imagine what it might be like if 'Dirty Harry' were Jewish."

"In which a grandfather and a grandson take a road trip together and discover that they dislike each other."

"In which 87 year-old Buck Schatz races against time to catch a fugitive Nazi before one of them dies of old age."
