Who are you, Truman Shown?

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.

Glad you liked it. Tee-hee.

PS Shh! Just a ploy to see if we can winkle out the real Truman Shown to blow his cover.

PPS When are we going for that drink?

Where's your favourite watering hole? And do I get to meet both bird and buffalo?

Well, any one will do, either in town near Charing X or in the Crouch End/East Finchley area. Up to you.

I'll zmail you my number.
