Got mine from Amazon yesterday - it certainly is a physically beautiful book, which I'm sure will attract the attention of browsers once it hits the shops. Shame they won't file it in various sections ('travel' for instance...)I've read the first couple of chapters and skimmed a bit - words like warm, honest, down-to-earth and funny spring to mind (but seem like inadequate cliches) Loving the chapter haiku!
Mine hasn't arrived yet... but amazon does now seem to think I'm interested in some very different books from before! Its broken their previous profile of me!
Well you're in Biography in Waterstones in Oxford St :-)
...I see that it's in Amazon's travel section now, Roy. Good-oh. Keep 'em confused.I hesitate to ask, Caroline, though I can perhaps guess. It's a funny business, isn't it?Good for Waterstones, Jo!
