Declan Hughes @ Rocky Sullivan's: How More Oirish Do You Need It To Be, Exactly?
HarperCollins are plugging the bejasus out of Declan Hughes' The Colour of Blood, and why not when he's the critics' darling du jour? New Yorkers can hear Declan's dulcet tones at Rocky Sullivan's at 129 Lexington Avenue @ 29th on Wednesday night. It's an 8pm kick-off, but we'd get there early if we were you ... this is one Buzz that's going stratospheric.
