“Jonathan LaPoma gives us a coming-of-age novel that tackles alienation, misguided hopes, and addiction, making the tale perfect for those who enjoy satire and darker humor.”
Jonathan LaPoma finished the first draft of his latest novel, HAMMOND, which follows a group of troubled boys who play basketball at a city court in Buffalo as a means to escape their abusive households. LaPoma hopes to publish the book by Christmas.
