Hi guys,

Still in Japan so not likely to attend anything soon, but I thought I'd pop back in to mention that one of my nearest and dearest friends has just published his first novel. Admittedly its postmodern credentials are dented somewhat by the fact that it's written both in plain English and full sentences, though more ardent fans of the genre may take comfort in a guest appearance by Schroedinger's Cat.

Naturally I have a bias, but I hope I'm not being completely partial when I say I think it's one of the best debut novels I've read. I could do the whole song and dance ("it'll make you laugh; it'll make you cry") all of which would be true, but I think maybe it'd be less annoying for all concerned if I just linked to the amazon page, where you can 'look inside' to preview the first 20 pages more or less uninterrupted:­

Are you 'big in Japan'?

I'll have a look - supporting the up-and-coming novelist...

I think I am so small in Japan as to raise quite serious ontological questions, but at least for the time being the typhoons have stopped.

Thanks for checking out the book - if you do end up giving it a go I'd love to hear your thoughts!
