Another online review of Lichtenberg & The Little Flower Girl here. Good. There are at least a couple of online reviewers I trust and respect more than almost anyone writing in print, but it’s hard to overturn the quaint convention whereby newspaper reviews are considered of higher status than online reviews.
We need column inches to get booksellers interested in stocking the books. Should we publish novels by former New Labour spin doctors? But if one such came along, quite apart from not being able to afford the required advance I doubt I’d think it worth publishing anyway.
