The trouble with books is readers

Once you've written your masterpiece - see A Half Life Of One - how do you know you're going to get the readers you deserve?

I mean, you wouldn't let just anyone into your house would you? And a book is much more important than a home.

Up to now, fortunately, I've been lucky. A Half Life Of One has one reader called a.nonny-mouse (you know who you are) and he or she sounds like a thoroughly decent cove. (I don't mean one reader among many here, I mean one reader. Period.)

I guess there should be some sort of vetting procedure.
