The Normal Need Not Apply? New York Roommates Published by Outskirts Press

Howard Boger’s latest fiction takes readers on a wild and entertaining romp with an assortment of characters from midtown Manhattan as an innocent man tries to find just one suitable roommate.

New York, NY, September 07, 2012 --( Novelist Howard Boger announced today the release of New York Roommates, Where Do These People Come From? published by Outskirts Press. Boger asks the leading question, “What’s the difference between women looking for an apartment in New York City and wild animals roaming the wilderness?” and he answers: “Nothing. Absolutely nothing.”

Hank has had nothing but bad luck in trying to share an apartment in the city. His last male roommate has tried to put the moves on him, and Hank has decided never to share an apartment with a man again.

He places an ad in the Village Voice and makes it straightforward and quite to the point: “Female wanted to share apartment with musician/photographer. No males allowed!”

He sits back in anticipation of dealing with the usual parade of New York weirdos looking to share a flat, but the collection of wild women wending their way to his door turns out to be beyond even anything he could have imagined.

Boger tells a humorous and revealing tale of life in the city which is sure to strike a chord with anyone who has ever had to share a space with another inhabitant from out there in the human jungle.
