He will be joined by Edward Fitzhound (a.k.a Malcolm Hall,
children’s book author) who will read from his Rubaiyat
of Rover Khayyam, a humorous canine takeoff of The Rubaiyat
Of Omar Khayyam. Boloker and Fitzhound will sign copies
of their books at the reception following the presentation.
humorous essays that appear in Bananaman:
Grumblings Of an Imperfect World will make you laugh
as you agree with his frustrations with and his criticisms
of contemporary society. He keeps himself well-occupied in
his ‘retirement years’, speeding on the Arizona
highways and facing the consequences of being detected by
radar and enduring a remedial driving class which cost less
than paying the actual fine. In that class he got to rub
shoulder with America’s youth and observe them in all
their finery: blue jeans with holes in knees and butts, belly
buttons exposed, some tattoos and nose and eyebrow rings
as well as backward baseball caps and flannel shirts opened
over T-shirts. Boloker also has time to clean up after others
and lecture them in the process either by letter or in person.
The author really gets the reader intrigued by what he will
do next. Something is always going on with the Bananaman!
What does it mean to
be a dog and a mortal being? Rover Khayyam, the barking bard
of Philadelphia with the help of Edward Fitzhound translating
from the original Dalmatian present’s a dog’s
answer to the well-known Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. All
dog lovers will enjoy Rover’s thoughtful meditations
on the life of a dog.
