Hernani hits London West End

Extremely happy today to announce that Samuel French’s Theatre Bookshop in the West End of London has agreed to carry Hernani, by Victor Hugo, translated and adapted by Pierre Bedard. The play should hit the hopefully fly off the shelves next week, necessitating ceaseless reorders. Yeah. That’s what is going to happen.  Gwyneth will be browsing through one day and decide that she should be Dona Sol. She’ll read it, talk to someone that matters, and all of a sudden you have Hernani in Love and it is playing in the west end. Yeah, that’s the ticket.





Place des Vosges and Maison Victor Hugo

This gallery contains 35 photos.

An all too long but interesting slide show of pictures I took in Paris on one of my trips. These pictures show both the interior and the exterior of the Maison de Victor Hugo at Place des Vosges. It is in the Marais, surrounded by very high end art galleries. I could see myself there!


Good press for Hugo’s Hernani – kind review drives sales

Thanks T. M. Lennard for your kind review. To the rest of you facebook miscreants, I don’t care if you loath me or love me, but write something about it on Amazon. The world really does want to know about your experiences suffering through reading about living and working on a Canadian coal-driven bucket full of ammo from Halifax to Liverpool during the Battle of the North Atlantic. Beyond what I know is your special relationship with Thetford Park, it is transcended by your love of opera and how the faithful translation of Verdi’s inspiration for Ernani (Hugo’s Hernani) was used by the British National Opera.

Vote now, and vote often but vote – write that glowing Amazon review and I’ll spiff you with goodwill or a free book, whichever is worth more to you.
