Word from Ian Sansom
From Ian Sansom's newsletter...
Dear friend/former friend/acquaintance/colleague/distant family member/reader/person who-once-signed-up-to-the-very-irregular-email list-and-never-heard-a-thing,
Sorry to bother you, but I thought you might like to know that the new Mobile Library book is about to be published. (Frankly, if I didn't tell you, it's unlikely news of it would reach you).
The Bad Book Affair tells the unlikely story of a Unionist politician trying to make a comeback after a scandal involving sex and money.
Actually, that's no longer unlikely - it's happening! In the next book I am going to predict the National Lottery winning numbers.
Anyway. Israel rides, grumpily, again. He's nearly 30. He is reading David Foster Wallace.
There are rumours of a BBC tv series based on the books. You'll be the first to know should it all work out.
Here is a link to Amazon. In the UK. Other retailers are available.
The book is published by Harper Collins, UK and USA. If you are German, Norwegian, Italian or Norwegian, translations are coming soon - but you could always buy the English version and use it as a parallel text.
There. That's all my publicity done for another year.
Belated New Year greetings.
I remain, etc.,
