The Surrey International Writers’ Conference has come and gone for 2014. It was amazing fun, reconnecting with old friends and garnering inspiration from all the giant brains in attendence. The conference has eaten my head for the past two months [hence the scanty posting here] but has provided me with all kinds of interesting projects I’ll be talking about over the next few months. And I’ll post a few pix soon, too.
I have come home to a little mystery this week that I thought I might ask your help with. All ideas welcome!
I received a small packet in the mail; a book [one that I already own, interestingly enough] called ‘The Meanwhile Chronicles’ by Roddy Doyle. It’s technically a used edition — Scholastic paperback version, a bit yellowed, but the spine uncracked. It was sent to me via Amazon.ca with no shipping label from Better World Books in Chicago.
I HAVE NO IDEA WHY.
I mean — I love Roddy Doyle. I own just about every book he’s ever written, including this one. And I love getting books — who doesn’t? But I didn’t order this one, and Amazon can’t tell me who did.
I mean, I totally know you would send me a book if you could. But if you didn’t send this one, can you help me figure out who did? Let’s solve the puzzle together, shall we?
