I'm giving away five copies of "Truth in Advertising," the debut novel from John Kenney, a New Yorker contributor and recovering copywriter. The Washington Post, in a review by John Wilwol, called it a "wry sendup of the advertising industry and corporate culture." Ad Age's own Ken Wheaton pronounced it "a hilarious, heartfelt take on adland." (Definitely click through to Ken's post if you haven't seen the video trailer for the book yet; it's very funny.)

THE FINE PRINT: To enter the random drawing in this informal Media Guy Media Giveaway, send me an email with "Truth in Advertising giveaway" in the subject line. Entering more than once will not increase your odds. You have until Feb. 22, 2013 to enter (the cut-off is the end of the day at 12 midnight ET). You must be 18 or older and have a valid U.S. mailing address.

LAST WEEK'S MEDIA PICK & GIVEAWAY: The heartbreaking, heartwarming and rather amazing documentary "Searching for Sugar Man," just released on DVD. (There's still time to enter to win a copy if you're reading this on or before Feb. 15.)
