My most favorite dilettante, the delectable, delicious Helena Hann-Basquiat will soon be publishing her memoirs. This post celebrates, nay, rejoices in the Cover Reveal of her upcoming book. This is not hyperbole, for Helena is one of the wittiest writers I’ve had the pleasure of following. Her imagination knows no bounds. She can be the epitome of decorum yet is fully capable of making a drunken sailor blush. I, for one but not the only one, look forward to seeing her work in book form.

MEMOIRS OF A DILETTANTE VOLUME ONE – COVER REVEAL!
COMING SPRING 2014 — official date TBA
Memoirs of a Dilettante is a collection of reminiscences, following Helena Hann-Basquiat, a self-proclaimed dilettante who will try anything just to say that she has, and her twenty-something niece, who she has dubbed the Countess Penelope of Arcadia. Follow their off-beat antics in places as common as the local McDonald’s or the comic book store, or on their search for the perfect Cuban sandwich in Miami.
Interspersed between wacky one-off adventures, Helena tells personal, sometimes painful stories from her past in order to try and make sense of her life as it has played out, tempering everything with an indomitable sense of humour.
Cummerbund Bandersnatch, the Accidental Plagiarist, strippers, rock stars, geeks, freaks, and the Barista With No Name — these are just a few of the characters you’ll meet inside.
Discover Helena’s tales for the first time or all over again, with new notes and annotations for the culturally impaired — or for those who just need to know what the hell was going through her mind at the time!
