    What a fabulous and varied list! Did one person talk about both “The Master” and “Author, Author”? I read “The Master,” and intend to read the other.

    Hey, if anyone in your group would like copies of the latest Martin Millar: Milk, Sulfate, and Alby Starvation, fire me an email

    And, you know, if you want, any of those first three you mentioned too. All yours, too. Totally chuffed to be in there. Thanks to you guys at Booklist for helping bring attention to them…
