The proofs for book 1 are almost ready! Glad we spotted the bit where it says "Sophie Hardach asserts his rights...". Let's hope the typesetters get the right PDF file.*

* Speaking of which: what I find most surprising about the Great Franzen Recall is that this doesn't happen more often. My own editing process involved various electronic copies (FinalFinalDraftTHIS ONE PLEASE.doc) as well as three printed manuscripts that were marked up by hand. The result was an amalgamate of ink, pixels and pencil marks spread liberally over 400 paper pages and a Word file...how the typesetters figured that one out is beyond me. Sometimes it's best not to ask.
