LONDON — Short poems travel with a “hopeless hitchhiking” hitchhiker to other continents, the author of one of them has told a British newspaper.
David Pritchard, an author of several books on his life, including “Fooled,” “Crazy,” “Pitiful” and “I Saw Your Face,” has been working with a group of fellow hitchhikers to promote the publication of his next book.
“My hope is that other people, like me, will take up the journey,” Pritchett told the Sunday Times.
The Hitchhiking to the Other Side group includes a young woman from London and her friend, a 23-year-old American who also has a short-story collection.
Pritchard said the young woman, who has not yet been named, has not had any luck in the United States, where he has been writing since last November.
She had been told her book would be published in the U.K. in December, but the U,S.
government banned publication of her book until it is approved for distribution by the U in January.
After the U ban was lifted, she said, she had to start planning for a trip to Canada, where she said she would be able to sell her book.
Pritch said he and his friends were working on the book for months before they were able to travel to New Zealand, a country that had not yet approved the book.
The Hitch-Hiking to Canada book has sold well in the UK, but has struggled to gain traction in other countries.
It has been published by the New Zealand Herald in New Zealand and has been the subject of a tripogue on the Huffington Post, which has attracted more than 3,000 comments.
Pritchess said the hitchhikes were part of his work as an author and a writer, but that the hitch-hikers’ stories were also part of a wider story about the “unbridled power of words” that “undermine social norms and give us the ability to communicate our desires and desires are not always reciprocated.”
Pritch, who lives in the North West, said he had been thinking about publishing his book in the past year.
He has spoken at universities and conferences about his short stories, and has also written a book of poems.
Pietersen’s daughter, a lecturer at the University of Oxford, has also contributed to his book.
