“M. J. Jackman is one of the most talented, exciting, and hilarious writers to explode onto the fiction scene in the 21st century,” was what Jackman hoped to read in the papers after the release of The Great Right Hope in 2009. He hoped his mastery of the written word and his elegant wit would bring celebrity status, which, in turn, would initiate the rock-and-roll lifestyle of hard drugs, hard liquor, and fast women, and then slower, more understanding women. In 2010, Jackman was made redundant.
He is selfish, impatient and a little insecure. He makes mistakes, He’s out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle him at his worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve him at his best.
