Although, Amazon.ca seems NOT YET to have it except in the Kindle version. Sheesh!
This news is pretty good ’cause I had an interview on CBC Monday and I said it would be up in a day or so. Thank God, it is! The interview was only 6 minutes long on All Points West with Khalil Akhtar but that leaves only 9 minutes more to fill to satisfy my Andy Warhol’s quota of 15 minutes of fame. Or one and half more interviews. Woohoo!
Oprah for nine minutes should do it, eh?
Now, just for the record: no one reading this has to buy the book. You’ve likely already read it in blog-version, anyway. The book is really just an interminable, mutated, cobbled blog diary hacked and blended into something half-readable by an editor who thinks the author mad most of the time, stupid all of the time and funny but once or twice every hundred pages. Sal is pretty fond of me but she is still an enthusiastic and staunchly correct (politically, manners, subject and grammar) critic. So, her reserved, British-side has curbed our optimism. “We won’t get rich and famous and, if we do, it will be in spite of our literary abilities not because of them”.
Which is good because I would be weak around groupies.
But please feel free to take it out of the library – when they get it – which will be sooner rather than later if you make the request (hint). You can use it for fire starter if you want because that will require the library to buy another copy. In that way, we can guarantee sales without burdening our friends.
Anyway, we retain the movie rights. That’s where all the action is. We’re gonna get Willy to play the orca. I figure Jack Black to play the raven, Kevin James to play me, Kiera Knightley will make a passable Sal if she works on her smile and builds some body strength while adding construction and literary skills to her haute cuisine abilities. Make-up and special effects will have to make her cuter, tho. Industrial Light and Magic if they want to get even close to the real Sally.
It may have to go animated….we’ll see. Shrek could play me………….
