Book reviews

I am exhausted from a rather wonderful launch party last night, but the first review of Fishing in Utopia is up, in the Economist. Very gratifying, with just the right touch of vinegar to keep it from being cloying — did you know I am given to prissy self-importance? — no, well the Economist will tell you, but also that I am the best religious journalist in England and that the book is very good, and fun. Don’t forget the fun. I hear that actually buying a copy will cause unexpected personal growth, if you do it every day for six weeks.
This afternoon the Sunday Times decided it wanted an author photograph to illustrate their review.

  1. “In some parts of the world, that would count as quite unusual” is a nice line.

    When will we see the US edition?

    Jonathan: I don’t know when or if it is coming out in America. My agent has the foreign rights.

  4. OK, thanks. FWIW, I bought Darwin Wars way back when through Amazon UK. The process was fairly painless, and shipping to the US was less than I had expected. I’ll try it again.

  5. And an update for your US readers. £16.57 for the book plus air (~one week) shipping.
