It’s out

And it’s beautiful. All you American readers, go and buy this book at once. Columbia University Press have done a wonderful job on the worm, including illustrations, which Simon and Schuster never bothered with in the English edition. This is the best produced and published that I have ever been. Naturally, I can’t find the damn thing on The cover is there, and the publisher is correct. But it appears from their text that I have co-written, with John Updike, a history of the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Perhaps there’s something in the AA catechism about this: “Have you ever woken one morning to discover you have written a book with John Updike? Has this happpened often?”

    “A Century of Arts and Letters” illustrated by a nematode worm?

    Ah… I see that MT eats anything in angle brackets it doesn’t recognise as a pukka tag.

    Never mind. The punchline so consumed probably deserves no better.

    Congrats, though.
