A Boilermaker for the Lady by Fred Yannantuono is now available.

The long awaited book by Fred Yannantuono, A Boilermaker for the Lady, is now available from NYQ Books. In it, Yannantuono flings the funny bone of life right into the void taking the reader on an inward journey that is at once vast and hilarious. With pithy limericks, palindromes, and poems Yannantuono demonstrates his unique and masterful use of language on every page. And with opening lines from the apparently observational such as "The dumbest guy in thirty years" to the seemingly ridiculous such as "A porcupine's an iffy thing to kill," Yannantuono's dry wit provokes humor and thought read after read after read.
