All Right on the Night?

We're just hours away from the launch of Requiems for the Departed at No Alibis Bookstore. The books are at the store, there's wine in the boot of my car, we've generated as much buzz as we could manage and there's nothing much I can do now but wait for 6:30pm to come around...

Damn you, Father Time. Give that egg-timer a shake, will you?

Anyway, I hope we get a decent crowd and that Dave sells a boatload of books. And I hope we don't run out of white wine. I nicked a bottle from the stash last night and would feel a bit wick if anybody's left wanting.

By the way, I was interviewed by the cool, elegant and scarily intelligent Marie-Louise Muir on BBC Radio Ulster last night. If you missed Artsextra, here's a link to the Listen Again thingy. It turned out quite well, I thought.

The interview went very well. Hope the evening is just as successful! Say hello to folks for me.

Break a leg, squire ... Hope it all goes off a treat.

Cheers, Dec

Although the BBC wont let me play it in Australia I heard via my mum that you were very confident and poised in the interview.

M-L can be a little distracting with her foxy ways

Adrian said...


Actually I stand corrected. My mum says she heard you on Wendy Austin.

Were you on two programmes?

Gerard Brennan said...

Adrian - Yeah, I managed to get on Artsextra on the Wednesday night and Talkback the following day. I'm a lucky boy.

Gonna try and rattle out a quick report on the launch during my teabreak.
