A Very Funny New Book of Satire by the Great Bill Boggs – “The Adventures of Spike the Wonder Dog”
Q. Lewis, I need a good book recommendation. Something that will make me laugh, and has a bit of satire in it. Any suggestions?
A. Yup. The Adventures of Spike the Wonder Dog” provides that for sure. It was written by my friend Bill Boggs. Billis a really warm and kind man, has a great sense of humor. In the early days of my career, I did a lot of talk television and Bill was often either the host or the producer of shows I was a guest on. Bill is one of the great interviewers, From Sinatra on down. Wait did I just say I was interviewed by the same guy who interviewed Sinatra. Cool!
You can order the book by going to www.orderspike.com.
Anyway, I asked Bill to send me details about the book. This is what he wrote to me
“Short of a vaccine, laughter is the best medicine, and “The Adventures of Spike the Wonder Dog” provides that for sure.
The most recent review blurb from O Henry literary magazine said, “This is exactly the funny kind of novel we all need to be reading right now.”
Again, you can order the book by going to www.orderspike.com.
All the best and stay well.
