Agree, he looks a bit like Antonio Conte in that pic.

What is the actual point in buying these books again in hardback when you (I assume) already have them? I’d only be interested if they were released digitally on the Apple Bookstore!


Edit: Just looked on the Apple bookstore and Literally is on there to pre-order but Versus America isn’t yet!
Actually I don't have either book, in any form!!! I love a real book, rather than a digital version, same as a CD!
Don’t be scared, for only the dark can show you the stars

I think that was the point.

I love the original books so a nice addition to my compilation. Hopefully there'll be lots of new material.

Or it could just be down to some reformatting of the pages, different font, typesetting etc. I'd love to see a directors commentary similar to the Smash Hits interview in the last issue of Annually, but I'm not getting my hopes up for anything new.

Will be happy to see it finally available as an ebook.
