Dear Australia, THANK YOU for the most wonderful week of my life. You were overwhelmingly
kind and appreciative. I love your wonderful country! I hate to leave and I hope
to come back soon.

(Maybe I'll just over-stay, rent a room and write books from here.)
(Don't worry, Department of Immigration and Citizenship, I did leave.)

A big THANK YOU to those people (nearly 200) who came to my event at the Edinburgh
International Book Festival 2007. You were the most wonderful audience anyone could
have wished for. You laughed heartily when you were supposed to laugh, you listened
quietly when you were supposed to listen, you asked thoughtful questions afterwards.
Your comments to me in the signing queue were very generous and I am deeply grateful.
It was the best day of my life. Also to the organisers and staff of the Festival
for having me and being so welcoming. THANK YOU!
