Fresh Every Hour by John Peter Toohey (1879 - 1946).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/fresh-every-hour-by-john-peter-toohey/

This book is best described by its subtitle: “DETAILING the Adventures, Comic and Pathetic of one Jimmy Martin, Purveyor of Publicity, a Young Gentleman Possessing Sublime Nerve, Whimsical Imagination, Colossal Impudence, and, Withal the Heart of a Child.”
Jimmy, press agent extraordinaire, conjures up outlandish and truth-stretching publicity stunts for an amusement park, theaters and performers, often with unexpected and amusing results. Despite his foibles, Jimmy presses on in pursuit of career success and of pretty Lolita Murphy of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
The author, an American writer (and theatrical press agent himself) was a founding member of the legendary Algonquin Round Table and was reputed to have suggested the name for “The New Yorker” magazine. (Lee Smalley)

  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Wow, a new world's record for speed! Thanks, Ann, I've seen the MW. Since the chapters are untitled, there's no need, I believe, to put "Chapter 1" etc. in the "title" boxes.

Or you could just put "1" and "2" and so forth, just to keep the listeners from saying, "Hey, I think there's something missing!"

Decided as usual to lay down my marker, as well as to get a sense of this book. I think it'll be a hoot! Here's Ch. 1.

Now back to finishing The Book of DOOM!

Here's 5.

I like the brisk way the plot moves along. Nothing too deep to dwell on, so far at least.
