I didn't know this one was coming - this morning a friend in Sydney sent us a text to let us know that South From Alaska had been written up in today's Sydney Morning Herald.
So of course we got a copy. I still don't like reading things like this, but Alisa read it to me, and I found that was pretty easy to take. And I was struck by one detail - the byline. Reviewed by Bruce Elder, it says. So even though it ran in the travel section, I reckon it's an honest-to-god review.
Book reviews, of course, have largely gone the way of the papers that used to run them, so getting this one was a treat to brighten a boatyard day.
