Editorial Reviews

Former rock musician and recovered alcoholic Mishka Shubaly doesn't seem like the type guy who'd audition for a reality dating show, but after enduring a painful breakup, that's exactly what he does in his sardonic, heartbreaking, and refreshingly honest Bachelor Number One.
Shubaly's wry, candid performance of his own semi-autobiographical work brilliantly captures his vulnerability and ambivalence, and his spot-on comedic timing pokes equal fun at the reality TV auditioning process as well as his own narcissism.

Publisher's Summary

Only five days after a nasty breakup, best-selling Kindle Singles author Mishka Shubaly is invited to audition for a reality show - a dating reality show. Against all logic, he applies and, against all logic, he advances. Fearless and funny, Shubaly is forced to interrogate not just the reality of the show but also his decisions, his addictions, his neuroses, his desires - indeed, his entire reality.

Be does it again.

This is the second book I've heard from Mishka. Fucking fantastic. It's as honest as it gets and that's what's addictive.

Easy Listen-A Beachy story; Not serious, light fun

Just a fun, light listen, when you need something un-serious but enjoyable. In the vein of reality-programming gone awry! Liked the narration by the author as well.
