Okay, I admit it. I was looking at my amazon page. There was a reason. And it was not to check my ranking, I promise. I just can't remember what it was exactly. Oh yes, I was interested to see what other books people who had dallied over Taking Comfort had bought. So I zoomed down to the bottom where it lists the 'people who bought this also bought these...'
Then I spotted a few of those listomania things at the bottom. Clicked on the first one, an alternative Booker list, only to discover this.
Wow. Scroll down and you'll see I made it on someone's alternative Booker list! Along with the mighty Jim Younger, I notice.
Well, whoever you are, Truman Shown (not your real name I suspect) thank you very much. It may not be the real list, but it means a hell of a lot to me.
