Are You Superstitious?

Caroline Upcher

ARE YOU SUPERSTITIOUS? is a litte Christmas gift book with which people can have a lot of fun. All royalties will be donated to 2 charities: THE CHICKEN SHED THEATRE COMPANY which trains special -needs children to work in the theatre and the Aids charity CRUSAID.

The book is made up of individual superstitions contributed by celebrities who ARE superstitious (including Lynda La Plante, Sarah Miles, Mrs Merton) and those who aren’t (for example Terence Conran, Tom Stoppard, David Hockney, Frederick Forsyth, Greg Norman). There will also be superstitions that relate to particular generic groups like jockeys, stuntmen, chefs, the homeless and many others.

The other point of the book is that it is deliberately small as it is intended as the first of many. The public are invited to contribute to ARE YOU SUPERSTITIOUS 2? There will be a form in the back of the book encouraging them to send in their superstition (for charity) to be included alongside celebrities in the next book… and so it will grow.
