Dear friends,

First i want to thankyou all the booksellers who hosted me in their bookstores: Book Passage in San Francisco, Copperfield's in Healdsburg, Vroman's in L.A, The King's English in Salt Lake City, Common Goods Bookstore in Saint Paul ( Minneapolis ), Boswell Books Company in Milwaukee, Book Stall at Chesnut Court ( Chicago), McNally Jackson In New York, Politics & Prose and the Alliance Française in Washington D.C, Brookline Booksmith in Boston. I want to thankyou all my escorts - from the consortium or not - great thanks to Meryl Zegarek ( and Rachel ) my special agent in NYC. A big big thanks to my publisher Gallic book and Jane Aitken. And a hudge hug to all my american readers !

I'll be back.
