Warren Adler and Fiona Walsh at Barnes & Noble Lincoln Triangle on April 18
Warren Adler, author of The War of the Roses, will be speaking at Barnes & Noble (Lincoln Triangle) in New York City on Friday, April 18th at 7.30pm on his new novel Funny Boys. The story, which takes place in 1937, the heyday of Borscht Belt, is about a budding comedian in the Catskills whose clientele consists of members of the notorious Murder Inc. gang. Mr. Adler will talk about his book and the impact of Jewish humor and its entry into modern mainstream comedy. . . Joining him in his talk will be the winner of the People’s Choice Award in the second annual Warren Adler Short Story Contest, a delightful young standup comedian from Ireland, Fiona Walsh, who has just completed a gig in a contemporary Catskill resort.
