I’m giddy with excitement about the fact that my lovely ladyfriend, Máire T.Robinson is launching her debut short story collection, tomorrow, Sept 11th at 7:00pm in the Irish Writers Centre on Parnell square( 2 doors down form the Hugh Lane Gallery). The book is called “Your Mixtape Unravels My Heart” and it is being published by Doire Press in Galway.
We would love if you could join us for the launch, it’ll be a lot of fun, there will be booze, music and naturally a raffle for top top prizes.
If you can’t make the Dublin launch, Máire will be reading in Galway this Friday at the September Over The Edge Gathering in the Nuns Island Theatre. That event starts at 8pm and will also serve as the Galway Launch for the collection.
you can find out more about both events on facebook
the Galway launch here
the Dublin launch here
If you can’t make either of these events but would still like to read the collection it is available for purchase from Máire’s website
and will be available from other resellers shortly after that. But if you are going to buy it, you should buy it from Máire.
‘Sparky language and unexpected turns, pathos and humour, viciousness and emotional resonance, these are the hallmarks of Máire T. Robinson’s fiction. In this collection, she follows Flannery O’Connor’s dictum that stories should be ‘short but deep’. This is a writer who is here to stay.’
