Product Description

Review

"Only a masterful storyteller can take you where Ferone takes you ..." -- Freddy Bosco, The Bloomsbury Review - Jan/Feb 2001

"[Boomboom is] an intriguingly eccentric paperback original ... Ferone's portraits of his scruffy locales and wistful hero are engrossing." -- Adam Woog for the Seattle Times - July 1999 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Joseph Ferone has worked as, among other things, a longshoreman on the Vancouver docks, a tugboat deckhand, a construction worker in the Arctic, a merchant seaman on deep-sea freighters, and a photojournalist. Over a dozen of his songs have been recorded, and he sold his musical, Harbor Light, to CBC Radio. He has lived in the East End of Vancouver with his wife and three children for many years. He is a full-time writer. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Boomboom, by Joseph Ferone, combines suspense and mystery with the author's unique blend of laugh-out-loud humor, puns and hysterical malapropisms. I can't wait to read it again. I hope I never meet Iris in a bar or anywhere, but I hope I do read plenty more by Mr. Ferone! His characters are straight out of the shadows and yet as clear and knowable as can be. For a gritty, funny, puzzle of a book read Boomboom. You won't guess what happens, but you'll think about it long after you finish.
