The amazing Sequoia Nagamatsu has created this video. It is so good, SO good... turn sound on and listen. Even if you don't want to get the book... look!
(Oh and my copies arrived this morning. I am a tad excited...)

My teenage son overheard me playing the video... pricked up his ears and wanted to know what I was doing.

I explained about the project... he was very impressed*.

As well he might be.

Great stuff, V. So proud to just know you.


*impressed with the project and a little impressed at his dad listening to something that isn't CSI or Grey's Anatomy.

awesome - the book. you are in with at least two of the top short story writers in the world, jhumpa and chimamanda. and you makes three. of course the others probably are as well, i just don't know them as well.

Well, there is more than a little heroine-worship going on in our house, I can tell you! JL and CNA are stars!

The collection was initially the work of 19 writers, some fairly well published, others hardly at all.. from all over the world.

Then when we found a publisher, which happened fast... we approached Chimamanda N A , Jhumpa Lahiri, Henriette Rose Innes, and they liked the philosophy behind the collection and agreed to contribute work too.

writing takes you to some lovely places!

thanks for popping in Stephen.
