Think Local, Read Local!
By: Fred Reiss
Funniest book I've read in a long time, and it takes place in Santa Cruz! You'll recognize many of the character types within our beach town: surfing locals, college students, Silicon Valley transplants, and the people who hang out around the Pacific Garden Mall. Enough zingers to make you laugh out loud at two o'clock in the morning, and then in an attempt to quote a few of them the next day to a colleague, wind up saying "I'm no good at paraphrasing… you'll just have to read it for yourself!" Mr. Reiss, who lives in Santa Cruz, has published a new book, "Aliens! Surf! Santa Cruz!" which is soon to be found on the library shelves. Be sure and put it, as well as his other hilarious books ("Gidget Must Die" and "Blind Guys Break 80") in your "bookbag"!
