Who's Publishing What: I Buried Paul

Bruce Ferber’s newest novel, I Buried Paul  (The Story Plant), is “a love letter to the power of music, a humorous yet moving exploration of the sacrifices its disciples are willing to make in service to its magic.”

Bob Spitz, author of The Beatles, says “Ferber has captured lightning in a bottle, chronicling a generation’s obsession with the Beatles.”

Scott Bradfield, author of The History of Luminous Motion, offers this advance review: "First, the good news: Paul isn't dead, and this isn't an autopsy. Rather it's a funny, moving novel about trying to find your way home from the Abbey Road of your teenage fantasy life, while simultaneously escaping the shadows cast by your father, your older brother, many failed relationships and a world that doesn't like to see people doing what they love — such as making their own music. Reminiscent of Anne Tyler and Richard Russo (if either could keep a steady bass beat), Bruce Ferber writes humorous fiction for grown ups."

Ferber, who has keynoted and served on the faculty of the Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop, built a long and successful career as a television comedy writer and producer. He’s been nominated multiple times for Emmys and Golden Globes, and his credits include Bosom Buddies, Growing Pains, Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, Coach and Home Improvement, where he served as executive producer and showrunner. In addition to being recognized by the Television Academy, Ferber's work has received the People's Choice, Kid's Choice and Environmental Media Awards.

He is the author of two previous novels, Elevating Overman and Cascade Falls, along with the nonfiction book, The Way We Work. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, large dog and assorted musical instruments.

The Grapes of Laughs

With apologies to Elvis Presley, who is not taking requests these days, I’m a hunk of burning love, not only for my wife, Sue, who doesn’t always think I’m hot stuff, but for wine, which we both (Sue and I, not Elvis) really enjoy.
