Heard any good books lately?
Writer and voice artist Heber Rowan writes:
A short audiobook called ‘Brown Brick’, I narrated for Dublin author James Lawless, is now on sale and I would like to offer Broadsheet readers a number of FREE UK promotion codes…
This is a story about an elderly man from the LGBT community in Dublin at the end of his life and a strange desire to break down a brick wall piece by piece….
The first anthology of Irish documentary drama. Featuring six writers interrogating and commenting on crucial events of Irish history and of the diaspora.
This was published yesterday. We’d planned to have a big Dublin bash to launch it, alas it was not to be. Still, we got our first review in, and it would make great quarantine reading!
