I ordered my copy from Fishpond.co.uk. 7 days ago. Hasn't arrived yet, probably shipped from Australia
Sounded like the natural thing to do after reading Tamar's book " The Water and the Wine".
All good things from me

I have also just finished this book and loved it! Although it is not about Leonard as much as we may like ;-) , it is very interesting and even eye opening. I definitely recommend it, especially for anyone going to Hydra.

While reading Half the Perfect World, I felt lost inside Hydra in the 60s, and only wish I could have been there. Although the Johnston's lives may have been only 'half perfect', it seems to me that they really lived their lives, and that's the most that any of us can hope for, even with all of our faults and mistakes.
