Here are some excerpts from my reading of excerpts out of my new Novel, The Buzzer as presented at The Irish Writer’s Centre on 10 May, 2016. Many thanks to Amy, Bernie and Valerie at the centre and my dear friend, Fionan Nadim who filmed the proceedings.
Yes, folks – I am taking a break – moving back to Ireland and reinventing myself there like I did some 35 years ago. Give me six months. Cheers!

This Sunday past (4 October) was the best run so far of the Whitman Tour in Brooklyn and even though it is subject to weather we really hope to make this a weekly feature that can perform throughout next spring and summer.
It’s good. It’s funny and, yes, it’s filled with both poetry and gossip (Don’t get Mr. Whitman started on the writers that would follow him living in the DUMBO/Brooklyn Heights vortex.
Here are some snaps taken by audience members on what turned out to be a lovely Sunday afternoon in Brooklyn.
Here it is! The premiere reading of “3 Lies about Brooklyn, pt3: A Death in the City” as taken off the house camera at Dixon Place Theater in NYC on 30 July, 2015. (Big shout-out of thanks to Ellie, Katy and all the staff!)
This is the third and final installment of Farrell’s childhood/young-adult memoir. It starts in an orphanage and ends with a murder.
It’s very funny. Sort of.
This s the murder.
The aggregate text will be refashioned into an 80 minute event with visuals, voice-over and, possibly, a live musician or two. That will hopefully premiere during the summer of 2016.
(Visit our Facebook page for more updates! 3 Lies about Brooklyn )
Mr. Whitman will be there from 2 -5pm (ish)
He will be available to read poems, pose for photos, gossip and offer sage advice.
All for free, of course!

Just a few snaps from this weekend’s last reherasal of Sophia Romma’s haunting play about Russian poet Marina Tsvetaeva, The Past is Still Ahead. The funding was generous and the cast was top notch. Montauk is cool. I hope the show finds a New York venue.
