Inspector Singh in Tescos
I'm putting up some of the more literary pictures from my U.K. trip. Shamini Flint asked me to keep an eye out for her novel in Tescos and elsewhere. Here it is on special offer in the harrow branch of Tescos, and at number 7 in their hit parade. (I think the garland of dishwashing brushes is a nice touch - shows just how accessible books are to shoppers.)
Sadly the copy I bought had pages wrongly numbered. Page 42 faced page 213. So I wasn't very far in and had to return it. But I couldn't get a replacement copy because they had sold out. Good sign.
I also saw it in the local Waterstones where the copies were all just fine. Other friends have reported sightings across the UK.
