|Party pasodoble: Andrew Logan and Duncan Fallowell|
I deplore any kind of cosmetic intervention, except for the most gruesome accidents and war injuries. Failing that injunction, 90-year-old Jackie Stallone's recent attempt to claw back time must stand as my graphic advisory - click (best not to eat first) here.
On other matters, Madame Arcati finds herself more than a little surprised to learn that How to Disappear is not due a second edition or re-issue, either by original publisher Ditto Press or anyone else. This despite the title winning Duncan the PEN/Ackerley Prize for Memoir 2012, the UK's only literary prize for autobiography/memoir genres - as heralded here.
As things stand, your best hope of acquiring a copy is to find £5,000 to snap up the one used copy at that price on Amazon. Actually, for £5,000 you could bankroll a 3000-hard copy reprint even before consideration of much cheaper e-publishing options for all those juicy Kindles. Penguin, where are you, poppets?
And don't forget, Andrew's 'Phenomenal Elizabeth Taylor Portrait' can still be yours for an amazing £22,250 (+ £500 postage) on eBay - details here.
Come to think of it, both book and portrait offer substantial returns on outlay. Surely there's a European Lottery winner out there with vision.
