The hero of THANK YOU FOR SMOKING is Nick Naylor (Aaron Eckhart), chief spokesman for Big Tobacco, who makes his living defending the rights of smokers and cigarette makers in today's neo-puritanical culture. Confronted by health zealots out to ban tobacco and an opportunistic senator (William H. Macy) who wants to put poison labels on cigarette packs, Nick goes on a PR offensive, spinning away the dangers of cigarettes on TV talk shows and enlisting a Hollywood super-agent (Rob Lowe) to promote smoking in movies. Nick's newfound notoriety attracts the attention of both tobacco's head honcho (Robert Duvall) and an investigative reporter for an influential Washington daily (Katie Holmes). Nick says he is just doing what it takes to pay the mortgage, but he begins to think about how his work makes him look in the eyes of his young son Joey (Cameron Bright).

Highly praised at the Toronto Film Festival and very well-reviewed.

Book found

Sorry to bother anyone with Lost & Found posts, but I just wanted to say that this afternoon I found the book The Brooklyn Follies by Paul Auster outside McCarty hall. I noticed it was sitting on a wet bench with soaked newspapers and starting to get damp, so I took it with me to dry it out. If this is your book and you happen to be reading this, I'd be happy to return the book to you, just tell me what was written on the inside cover of the book.
