My editor hates my book.
Actually, no, that isnít fair; she seems quite happy with half of it. But itís a book of two voices, and she is not happy at all with the other one. Which means a couple of months of painful negotiation, hacking rewrites and uncertainties, just at the time when I could really, really do without this. In fact thereís probably no good time for news like this, but - well, now is emphatically a bad time. If this weblog slumps into silence at any time between now & Xmas, I havenít gone away and I am (probably) not dead; only too busy and too miserable to keep it up.
I knew I shouldíve been a merchant banker.
