All good comedy is based in reality. Joe Bruno has taken real situations from "the old neighborhood," which happens to be New York's Little Italy, and stretched them into laugh-producing fiction. If you've grown up in a neighborhood like Little Italy of any ethnic group, you'll feel like your back home and will laugh your ass off. If you're not, you'll just laugh your ass off and look for another Joe Bruno novel. --Sonny Girard - Author
Fuhgeddabout guys like Hamill and Breslin, there is no more genuine a guide to the sights and sounds of New York's recent past than Joe Bruno. --David Bellel - Knickerbocker Village Blog
"Find Big Fat Fanny Fast" by Joe Bruno is hilarious, well written, and a time machine-like journey into the unforgettable world of Little Italy, Chinatown and the Lower East Side of Manhattan. --Mathew J Mari - New York Criminal Attorney
I'm a sucker for spoofs and satire, so I found this book enjoyable. It
was laugh-out-loud funny in many parts (such as the names and
pronunciation of the Chinese mafia characters - priceless!) and kept me
reading. --Goodreads.com Mary Vernon
From the Author
Writing "Find Big Fat Fanny Fast - The Biggest Mafia Killer Ever!" was a roller-coaster ride, reliving my experiences of the past 50 years. I'd estimate 50% of the scenes in the novel actually happened to either me, my family or my friends (except the murders of course). All the characters are composites of people that have actually been part of my life. To reduce the possibility of a sudden "accident," names have been changed to protect the author.
In my last novel "Angel of Death," no character was based on any person I actually knew. Every character was invented by my fertile imagination. That was drudgery; not the joy ride I experienced penning "Find Big Fat Fanny Fast - The Biggest Mafia Killer Ever!"
I have enough additional personal experiences to write a sequel to "Find Big Fat Fanny Fast - The Biggest Mafia Killer Ever!" Which ones will I use?
I won't know until I start the process. But don't worry.
The names will be changed again to protect the author.
I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid.
