More Newton and the Counterfeiter, Mother Tongue edition
A return, gingerly, to the blogging life….
Move complete, and divorce avoided by promising my wife that I will never, ever dream of taking off for a week in London four days after taking up residence in a new home.
But that’s where I am now, here to do what I can to promote the UK launch of Newton and the Counterfeiter (you may recall — that book I’ve mentioned perhaps once or twice here. What? More than once or twice? Dozens of times. Well…sorry, sort of). US interested parties can look here: (Amazon, Powells, Barnes and Noble, Indiebound). In the UK, every paper that reviews it offers it through their branded shop, and there are as well the usual suspects…Amazon.co.uk, Waterstones, Blackwells, Borders, John Smith & Son.
I’ll talk about the most recent spate of British reviews, mostly very positive, one rather snarky (I’ll get to you in turn, Mr. Malcolm; wait patiently…) in a post not totally drowned in jet lag. For now, let me point anyone interested to a q&a Manuela Holterhoff published at Bloomberg Online — and save for slightly more awaketitude the charming sequel to that piece.
All by way of saying hello — it’s nice to be back.
