A hilarious new novel, written by longtime GMG FOB Doug Brendel, is now available in Gloucester exclusively at Dogtown Books, 132 Main St.
“It’s like a Mexican, a Korean, and a bigot walk into a novel,” Doug says of his outrageous new book, Praying for Mrs. Mombasa. “It’s a rollicking comedy, and an irreverent look at how hope works. Plus, it messes with our tendency to stereotype people. Funny, and a bit edgy in places. We’ll see how it goes over. I may have to sneak out of town, who knows?”
When you buy Praying for Mrs. Mombasaat Dogtown Books, you’ll also receive a free copy of Doug’s previous book, Ipswich in Stitches, comprised of amusing “greatest hits” from his popular humor blog at Outsidah.com.
Dogtown Books plans to soon host a book-signing event, where Doug will perform selections from the book and autograph purchased copies on request. Follow GMG for details to come.
(For those who can’t make a trip to Dogtown Books to purchase Praying for Mrs. Mombasa, the book is available online via Amazon.)

Our beautiful beaches were all but deserted as the weather did not cooperate for beach-going over the holiday weekend. One egret took the opportunity for some peaceful foraging at the creek at Good Harbor Beach. I guess he doesn’t care about bacteria levels…….
