Joshua Farrell is a Sonoma boy made good. Well, maybe that's stretching things a bit, but at least he's never done serious jail time. Plus, he's managed to make us laugh with his irreverent and yet oddly heart-warming valentine to Sonoma and its eccentric residents.
In his hilarious compilation of police blotter excerpts from the Sonoma Index-Tribune, kooky tales from locals, and personal stories, Farrell will have you choking on your Pinot Noir. With anecdotes ranging from sweet to bizarre, Farrell delivers an entertaining view of Sonoma that is routinely missed by wine connoisseurs, travel writers, and tourists. Crooks are caught with steaks in their pants, cops pull over kangaroo wranglers, and cons are chased down the street wearing bunny slippers. Sonomans at work, at play and on the lam. Even if Farrell gets run out of town, he'll have left behind a laugh-out-loud collection of oddball tales.
