On June 30, 2013, authors Greg Baines and Peter Rotundo launched new e-books and announced that profits will benefit Heifer China.
Peter Rotundo's The Elephant in the Room is a modern-day play, which was written specifically for a middle school in Shangai. It is a rewrite of Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac.
It tells the story of a woman who writes for a Shanghai television show. She is an extraordinary writer, but a strange deformity keeps her in solitude. She falls in love with an actor on the show, but so does the show’s beautiful star.
As an expat, Greg Baines spent over a decade in China. Concrete Fish is a collection of short stories often written from a Chinese local’s point of view. Baines works has been previously published, but appear together for the first time as a collection.
Both Rotundo and Baines are teachers at the Shanghai YK Pao School—a Heifer China Read to Feed partner school.
Both e-books are available at amazon.com.
