The cover for A Kind of Intimacy is now clearly visible on the Waterstone’s Website. Which also let me know, helpfully, that there are 144 days left until publication.

I don’t want to shoot myself in the foot, but £11.39* does sound quite dear for a paperback. We’ve all got to tighten our belts now the credit crunch is on. Maybe get rid of belts all together, and just use string.
It is one of the big paperbacks though, and I am fairly sure that it is going to be more than 200 pages. There is some sex in it, and a few murders. There are some jokes, some sad parts, a cow milk jug that pours milk out of its udders, and a sort of not sex scene with a tin of golden syrup.** Scissors, blood, a bit of despair. Embarrassment in vast quantities.
I think it’s an all right book. I don’t feel ashamed, is what I mean.
I’ll tell you what, if you buy it and you don’t like it I will send you an Essential For Life.
144 days. Cheesy Peeps!
*or free at your local library.
**Just realised my description has made it sound a bit like erotica. Sorry. It isn’t that erotic.
My mum read it, and didn’t shout at me.
