Meet Irvine Hunt on YouTube

A short film featuring Irvine Hunt is now available on Youtube.  It was recorded in an interview at his home near Penrith last year.  Irvine talks about his life as a writer and tells how the chance discovery of an old photograph of charcoal burners sparked his interest in Cumbrian life and tradition.

I am immensely proud to have had the opportunity to publish his two novels – The Drover’s Boy and The Ghost Show.  Irvine is an important literary figure in Cumbria whose poems, novels, short stories and photographic histories have contributed a huge amount to the county’s culture.  It is always fun and a privilege to work with him.  This film shows that dedication and determination are the requirements needed for a life in writing. Follow the link below to see the film.  If you enjoy it and haven’t already read the book, we are offering The Ghost Show at half price. Send an email to handstandpress@talktalk.net to order your copy.
