Since Annie Dunne seems to be generating some interest, I think I'll do a quickie giveaway. Because 'tis the season and all that. But first...
Migrant Mother, Dorothea Lange
Incidentally, the picture was taken in Nipomo, California, about 40 miles south of where I live.
I never knew that Lange went to Ireand in 1954 and took many photos of the people of County Clare.
County Clare, Dorothea Lange
While she was there she took this photo, which I cannot find independent of the book cover:
Bridie O'Halloran, Dorothea Lange
And this one, which is also on the back cover of Annie Dunne:
Sunday, Western Ireland, Dorothea Lange
Okay, so enough of the history lesson. Since there seems to be some interest in this book (or maybe it's just the cover), I'm going to give it away to one of you, as long as you leave a comment here in the next two and a half hours (that's up until 10pm Pacific time). Don't worry though, I'm also including the people who commented that they wanted it in the original Annie Dunne post. So if it's tomorrow when you read this, all is not lost (well, as long as you read my blog yesterday). Are you confused? Don't worry, I've got it all under control.
