Blurb (noun): a brief advertisement or announcement, especially a laudatory one.
And here’s a great one for Gabriel’s new book, Walking With Ghosts, from Barry Egan, whose article for the Sunday Independent sits behind a pay wall, but I got lucky:
… And, he tells me, he has a book coming out later this year which will deal with every aspect of his life, dark and light. That long awaited tome will be one of the publishing events of the year.
Huzzah! Or other happy noises! This book is sounding more and more like the one for which we have been pining, doesn’t it?
Walking With Ghosts is scheduled to come out in November. I’m scouring the website of the publisher, Picador, for news (and hoping breathlessly for a book tour, but in the age of pandemics, that is probably not happening, is it?), so stay tuned!
Here’s a screen grab of the part of Mr. Egan’s article that we really care about AND I replaced a pic of Barry Egan with one of Gabriel by another Barry (photographer Barry McCall) because reasons. Sorry, Barry E. As you say yourself: We take Gabriel. heart
Of course, I had to celebrate! So here’s a little pic to brighten up your desktop for Spring. wink
PS. This is NOT the book cover for Gabriel’s new book. It is just something I’ve made until the real cover becomes available. Enjoy! –Stella smile
