Oh well, Laura, it's only been 2 months. As I recall you live in the UK. If you would still like a copy of HONEYMOON FOR THREE, send me your mailing address in an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will order a copy for you on Amazon.uk. Happy reading!
Thanks for your comment, Laura. I don't know if the books are available on UK sites (although I suspect they are), but I'm sure we can get one to you if you'd like. And if there's any way I can help you through the possible HFA/AS diagnosis, feel free. I'm no expert, but I know a few.
I drew your name for a copy of HONEYMOON FOR THREE. Let's do it this way. Give me your mailing address (my email is email@example.com) and I will order a copy for you on Amazon.uk. That will save on shipping costs because the book is printed in England as well as the U.S. It won't be signed, but the next time I'm in England...
Hi PR, I've read both Thumbprint and In Matto's Realm, I really enjoyed those. Glauser appears to have written a great deal from his personal experience of various institutional environments - workhouse/asylum/foreign legion.
Pr - I must confess I quiet lurk on your blog (don't think I have ever posted a comment though), and have read your recent entries on Glauser and Izzo with interest. I read the first in the Marseille trilogy a couple of months ago, and it absolutely blew me away, the beauty of the writing and degree of love that author has for his city, despite all its faults. I really enjoyed the "Chinaman", found it more enjoyable than "Fever" (which I thought meandered rather and got a little dull, apart from the Foreign Legion section). With the "Chinaman" I felt it had almost a dickensian commentary on the workhouse system, with the ghastly poor house director and his homilies on pauperism, whilst living luxuriously.
Bitter Lemon Press has some excellent authors - Tonino Benacquista, Leonardo Padura and Carofiglio as well as Glauser.
Hi, Laura. I noticed some of your suggestions to our friend who asked for a reading list. I perked up when I saw Friedrich Glauser and Jean-Claude Izzo on your list. I love both and have posted about both recently on my blog at http://www.detectivesbeyondborders.blogspot.com/ Come visit!
