Pour The Gin Turn Up The Jazz
If you’re a fan of “Boardwalk Empire” like I am (I’m the Puffman!), you’ll love Renee Rosen’s heady new read. It’s “Dollface; A Novel Of The Roaring Twenties” & it’s the PRIZE tomorrow morning (Saturday) at 7:30 on Puffman Sports Trivia. America in the 1920’s was a country alive with the wild fun of jazz, speakeasies, & a new kind of woman-the FLAPPER! In “Dollface”, Vera Abramowitz, the ultimate flapper, captures the attention of 2 high rollers, a handsome nightclub owner & a sexy gambler. On their arms, she gains entree into a world filled with bootleg bourbon, wailing jazz, & money to burn. She thinks her biggest problem is choosing between them until the truth comes out. Her 2 lovers are really mobsters from rival gangs during Chicago’s infamous Beer Wars, a battle Al Capone refuses to lose. Before this ride is over, Vera must put together the pieces of her shattered life as Chicago hurtles toward 1 of the most infamous days in its history, the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. Check out “Dollface” at: www.penguin.com or www.roseneerosen.com & then listen to WIN tomorrow morning at 7:30 on Puffman Sports Trivia. In keeping with the “spirit” of the roaring 20’s, I’ll be asking a trivia question pertaining to the amber brew. 23 skidoo!
