A gift from Donna Moore...

The inimitable Donna Moore, author of Go to Helena Handbasket, has sent me a book (free of charge and postage paid). What did I get? Saturday's Child by Ray Banks. Now, I've never read Mr. Banks (my fault) but on her recommendation, it is the book I'll start reading today.

Still, the strangest thing... the front cover blurb proclaims that Banks is "part of the post-Rankin generation." Here I was thinking that Rankin might still have some life in him yet. Apparently The Guardian, a well respected news outlet, believes differently. Thank you for your services, Mr. Rankin. We hardly knew you.

You lucky devil. I had hoped to score SATURDAY'S CHILD when the lovely Donna offered it. Isn't she a peach? It's consoling to know, however, that the value of my Rankin signed first editions will shortly go through the roof.

Donna is a peach. No question. I can only hope to aspire to that level of peachiness. Give me a few days. If you're still interested, drop me a note, and I'll pass on my copy to you.
