Including a brief friendship with Steve McQueen in Hollywood (when the author was hawking a Porsche) and a VIP meeting with Baryshnikov (when the author was working as a carpenter), Dermot McCann's 'True Tales of an Irish Immigrant' in McCann's Shorts (self-published $20) recall a varied and colourful life in the tradition of humour-soaked Irish storytelling. Born in Belfast in 1950, McCann now lives aboard his 41-foot sailboat in Victoria's Inner Harbour. 978-0-9917845-0-9
