"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.
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.
