Earlier today, I went to a couple of my favourite shops – Daunts in Marylebone and the London Review Bookshop near the British Museum – to see if they were stocking my book since it came out today. And amazingly they were. And -insanely! – in the LRB they got me to sign a copy and a man bought it instantly (above is evidence!).
It was one of the most joyful experiences I’ve had in years and made all the work worth it. To the man who bought it, and to anyone else who does, thank you. I really hope you enjoy it.
