The Missing Shalimar Mystery

Have I collapsed into some literary blackhole? Has Shalimar the Clown, being awaited by self with bated breath been released? Without my realizing? Soon, somebody will be telling me that Zadie Smith's third book has been on the shelves aeons ago. *indignant pout*

On another note, yesterday's papers had something about Zadie Smith's husband up for a prestigious poetry award I am sure Nick Laird is suitably peeved. He can go on to win the Nobel prize but for all the world, the poor bloke will still be 'Zadie Smith's husband'. Every woman who has been called 'XYZ's wife' will identify squarely with Mr. Zadie Smith. My heart goes out to you mate.
