Surfing for Surrealism
So. This is surreal.
A lot of the accolades you get when you have a book published are predictable. The joy of fan mail. The thrill of book signings and conventions.
Yes. It’s an e-version of my novel CRASHERS, but written in Italian.
Now, Ie seen the print-version of CRASHERS in Italian. But this is the first time we’ve ever stumbled on an e-version. It apparently just came out this year from a publisher I’ve ever heard of before. And there it is: Big as life.
Of course I downloaded it.
It’s very, very mind-bending to read entire paragraphs of your story translated into the Italian – except for the character names and the obscenities. Of which there are, ahem, a few.
Per paragraph, apparently.
And while I’m trolling through the Internet trying to find this international e-version of my novel, I stumble on this: A British T-shirt company called Zazzle (I think auto-correct just had a hernia) that apparently has made a CRASHERS T-shirt.
Of course I bought it.
I was surprised to see that they had it in stock. In my size. Really, in all sizes. Apparently, there hasn’t been a mad run on CRASHERS T-shirts in England.
Can’t imagine why not.
