And yes, if you are following Project Runway, this arrives just weeks after their four elements challenge, which I found strangely colorless. Here's what Tim Gunn had to say.
The contributors are amazing:
Jonathan Buckley (OK, I've never heard of him)
Alexander McCall Smith
Diran Adebayo (here's the second unknown to me)
Victoria Hislop (don't know)
John le Carre
William Sutcliffe (don't know #4)
David Park (unknown to me--don't you ever play this game with lists?)
Michael Morpurgo (???)
And each volume contains a poem by Vikram Seth.
To the folks I don't know, I hope to be making your acquaintance (storywise) soon! Meanwhile, here's a photo of Jason, the proud buyer of this new arrival.
