I've just checked a bookshop chain here in BKK. It looks like they have it in stock.

Great.

I am hoping to see the film this weekend, and if I like it I will read the book. So it is possible I could join you.

Have just bought the book for the same price as one ten times bigger! Thankfully it was 3 for 2 day.  ;D

Great news, Jess!  Keep us informed.

BTW, I've posted over in the thread that the ETA for the first questions is April 5th.  Does that sit well with everyone?

I just bought a book on Greek funeral rituals that was well past halfway to a hundred dollars, so I feel your pain....

Note that although I've put the date April 5th up in the news box we can still discuss that.  I just wanted to get something up there ASAP.

Thanks to Sara for the suggestion.

April is fine.  I'll be away for a 5-day weekend at the end of the second week, but should still be able to squeeze everything in.

April is okay for me.
