Great news. I loved Slaves of New York. Was it really published 20 years ago? That makes me feel olllld.

Well done. She's a proper author.

Wow - I'm impressed. I remember when Slaves of New York first appeared. How exciting. Reading Oliver James' Affluenza at the mo - so the bit about society eaten away through commercialism rings lots of bells.


what does editor in this case mean? - does this mean that you will get early drafts and provide editoral insights! If so how does this work with publishing in other markets with other publishers ie what does her american editor do?

Small world - in our shop only a few yards from your door Scott, we used to sell piles of her stuff as remainders; I didn't think anyone else knew how good it all was.

And the boyfriend of the photographer who did the jackets was quite a regular too. if you are reading this Mike, get in touch...

Then TFL shut us down and split us all up. Thats what they're there for of course , to keep people apart.

I'm not bitter, I got to spend the past year bringing up my son.



I don't know why but the word 'gimmick' comes to mind.

Rachel Worth's friend - I am delighted to say that I am editing the book with Tama as The Friday Project has world rights. If anyone else wants to publish it they have to come to us. At the moment we are looking at a series of logos or icons to use on the page when certain characters take the fore. There are also a number of images that Tama wants to incorporate into the text and we are finding the best way of doing that.

Bela - Of course it is a gimmick. And hopefully a nice collectible one.

Never read 'Slaves' - but did enjoy 'The Male Cross Dresser's Support Group' (the book, that is not the therapy).Presumably I should scuttle off and read 'Slaves...' forthwith..?

Friends Of Rachel Worth is for my money one of the best Go-Betweens lps too.

I remember taking a film crew into a bad-taste New York restaurant one night to interview a con artist and Bret Easton Ellis. There at the table was this woman with long jellyfish-like hair. (Now, you'd call her a cross between Amy Winehouse and Nicola Six.) Anyway, through the fetching uncomfortableness of her shyness was this attractive and tactile shyness, which meant the next day I simply read one of her books. I was not disappointed.

Slaves of New York is great. Looking forward to this, gimmick or not.
