My Beautiful Mommy: old news

Not being one who jerks a knee without checking out why the knee has jerked (note to self: really ought to get into the habit of doing this the other way around). I made a few minutes today to look at Michael Alexander Salzhauer’s book on Amazon. You can’t ‘see inside’ but there are some examples of the cartoons and speech bubbles in the book. It is genuinely ick-making stuff. The three reviews I read are two or three years old now. One vouchsafed that the book was written by a plastic surgeon. Another that there is a donation to charity for every copy of the book sold. So it’s advertising + blackmail. But it seems to have found its level, way way down in the Amazon popularity stakes. Hellfire – even *my* book is more popular than ‘My Beautiful Mommy’.
