Descrizione prodotto


Jim Gullo is an author and journalist from McMinnville, Oregon, where he lives with his wife, sons, a dog named Louis and a rabbit named Fat Boy who is pure dynamite. His latest novel, GROUCH BAG, is set in his home town and in New York City of 1908. Jim has written about many things during a long career as a book and magazine writer. He has scuba dived with sharks in Tahiti, picked grapes in Burgundy, France, climbed mountains in Switzerland, golfed in Scotland, hung out with sumo wrestlers in Tokyo, imagined traveling in the South of 1855, and eaten at the finest pastry shops in Paris, among many other things. His books include a memoir about teaching baseball to his son, the as-told-to autobiography of the first African-American pro golfer, a novel about love and loss, and a loving tribute to the Marx Brothers written for younger readers. Contact him about anything (and I mean ANYTHING) at jim (at) jim-gullo (dot) com. Have fun, laugh a lot, and better make that six hard-boiled eggs.

5.0 su 5 stelle What fun this book is 3 ottobre 2015
Di Smacker - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
What fun this book is! It combines a zany, fast-paced, irreverent wit with a suspenseful story that places its sixth-grade class-clown hero in real jeopardy. The author has an obvious love and admiration for classic comedy, particularly that of the Marx Brothers, whose style he convincingly replicates. Middle school teachers the world over should be assigning this book to kids who will see its wise-acre protagonist as an hugely entertaining role model while familiarizing themselves with a short-course history of American humor.

Not because I am indeed related, I so enjoyed the story line and the many, varied historical references to a special time and place that none of us will have the unique opportunity to see ever again .......A sulute to the humor in all of us, and kudos to the 6th Marx Brother, Gullo....

5.0 su 5 stelle GROUCH BAG is a uniquely appealing time-travelling, teen-hero comedy adventure with all the Marx of a classic! 16 settembre 2015
Di C. Schoon - Pubblicato su

This is a book I really wish I would've come across as a teen reader, and one that I was more than happy to discover as an adult. It's pretty much got it all for someone looking to be immersed in the kind of fully imagined comedy-adventure that makes you regret reaching that last page so much that you try to slow down your page-turning or stop your reading early at night so the story will go on the next day. Chris Columbus should probably direct the movie. So, in addition to Mr. Gullo's truly inspired take on the origin story behind the matchless Marx Brothers rise to comic godlyhood, you've got a totally real and relatable main character in Josh, the class clown at his small-town school (relatable 'cause I spent some time in the principal's office for same general variety of goofball "offenses" so this was a quick sell for me). And yes, Josh's wise-ass/wise-beyond-his-years attitude will drop him into boat-loads of trouble, just like I hoped it would. Then, there's time travel. Oh yeah. And some resulting alt-history. And Slivers, an actual clown. And the awesomely magical wish-granting head-in-a-glass-box creepy-in-all-the-best-ways fortune teller, the Great Wandini. And that's pretty much just for starters. A big, honkin' five stars for Grouch Bag. Dive in - and root for Josh as he becomes the wildly improbable, one and only hope for saving the world from... well, that'd be telling.
4.0 su 5 stelle What a fun book this is 15 settembre 2015

What a fun book this is. It's written for junior high and high school readers in mind, but anyone who loves the Marx Brothers will get a big kick out of it. The descriptions of New York streets, circa 1908, and the voices of the brothers are spot-on. I had a great time reading it, and really appreciate that it introduces a younger generation of readers to those zany, hysterical Brothers. Highly recommended.

Excellent read!! Contained some facts and twists in the story line to make it most informative in addition to light-hearted.
I purchased a number of copies for "stocking stuffers" and am going to need more.
