Got my preordered book from amazon.de yesterday, it's the British edition by Canongate.
All I can say so far: It's beautiful.

However, I've found an error in the lyric version of 'A Street'. It ends with the words 'There may be wine and roses' - I'm sure this is a mistake.
Yes, A Street within Lyrics section of the flame is not as complete as the print version on the booklet of Popular Problems CD

I just received my copy of THE FLAME in the British edition; the quality is very disappointing: the paper is too thin, the font is much too small, and on the whole, there is a feeling of a second-rate job, especially when compared with Book of Longing. Since the book is divided into several parts, a table of contents could have been expected but none is given. Following the title page there is a page with an illustration and the title THE FLAME again, but this should have come after the Foreword and Editorial Note, not before them. These are perhaps small things but they add to the feeling that it could and should have been done better.

I guess I’ll have to ignore all this and focus on the contents, but it is a shame.

According to what I have been told, "[Malka Marom's book] is an illegal publication", and it remains to be seen what will happen to it.
Much to my surprise I received the book today. Ordered it over a year ago (august 2017) and had forgotten about it :oops: since it seemed to be "illegal". Apparently they have sorted out the right issues?

Hugo: where did you buy it (who delivered it)?
This seems to be some kind of mystery.
Also Finnish libraries have recently got copies.

Ordered it at Bol.com , biggest online bookseller in the Netherlands. As I said it was over a year ago that I ordered it and it suddenly was delivered last week. The current status of the book at Bol.com is “not available “ so it seems to be a glitch that made me receive the book(?) :o

I got my copy from Waterstones, probably the UK’s biggest bookseller after Amazon, last November.
