This is how we dance (David Diebold)

Regular price €4,00

Tax included.

From struggling actor to wannabe cook, aspiring filmmaker, and national newspaper hack, David Diebold’s unconventional life has placed him in some bizarre and precarious predicaments.

He has blagged his way onto the stage with the Kirov Ballet for an entire run of Le Corsaire without ever having danced; fibbed his way into a busy kitchen and cooked for Senator Ted Kennedy; and completely cocked up a job as a stripping vicar.

Strangest of all, perhaps, is the family backdrop to this rather odd journey, in which David discovered that his sister was actually his mother, and his real father, a former roadie with American hit band Three Dog Night, who he tracked down with an investigator, was a top movie special F/X man.

By turns humorous and heartbreaking, these 52 vignettes of life, love and loss are soul-searching, searingly honest, and just plain strange...

‘Wise, funny and profound vignettes of family life, foreign escapades and eulogies to the fallen; flash memoir that actually reads like The Great Irish-American novel’
