little boxes

Just a quick squib... I popped into Borders Bookshop in Bristol, to see if Becoming Drusilla was on the shelves yet. Tried the biography section. Nada.

Tried a search on their computer terminal. An assistant kindly came along and helped me. It turns out that they haven't received their copies yet.

"What section will it be in when you do get it?" I asked.

"Gay and lesbian", he said.

I thanked him and left.

Fair play, I suppose. After all, sexuality does get a mention in the book.

In passing.

In one paragraph.
