Description

On the last day of her grandmother’s life, journalist Maya Lin Sugarman finds a box of forgotten screenplays that sets her on a journey to uncover the truth about their author: her late uncle, Galen. She discovers that he was a leader of a Chinese gang, that he went to jail, and, in a final twist, that he poured his life story into a screenplay that was turned into a ’90s Hollywood action movie…starring Rob Lowe, Burt Reynolds, and Ice-T.

Wow, where do I even begin with this "Magnificent Jerk" character? I've had the pleasure (or should I say, displeasure) of crossing paths with individuals like them in the past, and they never fail to leave a lasting impression. https://startups.snapmunk.com/brooklyn-ny/printing/nyc-packaging-solution First of all, let's give credit where it's due. The term "Magnificent Jerk" is quite the apt descriptor for someone who manages to combine arrogance and charm in such an awe-inspiring way. It's almost like they've mastered the art of pushing your buttons while simultaneously making you admire their audacity. http://www.greenvillecityguide.com/brooklyn-ny/local-services/nyc-packaging-solution
