Meanwhile, you can order the book through any good bookshop. It’s very popular, I know, because my local library’s copy is never on the shelf. If you’re keen to read the book but you don’t want the expense of acquiring your own personal copy, you can ask your library to get one in.

You can also order on-line from·or email
