A Pint and a Haircut for Haiti

I´m really pleased that my story, “The Making of An Imaginary Friend”, will be included in the anthology, A Pint and a Haircut, to be published in September by Londubh Books, Ireland.

Garret Pearse was reading Paul Auster´s book True Tales of American Life when news of the Haiti earthquake broke. He felt it would be great to produce an Irish equivalent with as many true Irish stories as possible. All royalties from the sale of the book will go to Concern´s Haiti fund. You can pre-order the book at the publisher´s website.

Here´s another example of someone having an idea and running with it – despite all odds. Passion makes possible, as can be seen from 100 Stories for Haiti. Soon there´ll be true Irish stories for Haiti in the form of A Pint and a Haircut.

  2. Excellent – well done for you but even better for Haiti. Guess it dosn’t matter how many books come out of the tragedy if each can lessen the after trauma a little by raising much needed funds. And good to hear of the project continuing after many will have forgotten and moved on…
