Yes, that Steve Martin!  This is his second book, after Shopgirl.  I was excited to see this was the Kindle Daily Deal as Steve Martin is a gifted novelist.  I'm definitely picking this one up.
"Filled with his trademark humor, tenderness, and out and out hilarious wordplay, The Pleasure of My Company is a tour de force sure to delight all of Steve Martin's fans." --Patrick O'Kelley.

From the bestselling author of Shopgirl comes the tender story of a troubled man who finds love, and life, in the most unexpected place.


Daniel resides in his Santa Monica apartment, living much of his life as a bystander: He watches from his window as the world goes by, and his only relationships seem to be with people who barely know he exists. He passes the time idly filling out contest applications, counting ceiling tiles, and estimating the wattage of light bulbs.

It is through Daniel's growing attachment to Clarissa, and to Teddy, that he finally gains the courage to begin to engage the world outside, and in doing so, he discovers love, and life, in the most surprising places.
