Because it's all about me, II

The Chinese version of Amazonia has just came out, courtesy of the fine folks at Bookery Publishing. The jacket features of a burst of holy light emanating from a window, along with some sentences from the widely reviled Emerson chapter of the book. If that's what it takes to put this baby on the Chinese bestseller list, then I'm all for it. Meanwhile, the German edition is due out next week from Schwarzerfreitag. The translator, Andreas Freitag, spent a year or so in Seattle during the Boom, which should give him an excellent purchase on that era's pie-in-the-sky atmospherics. He also runs the publishing house, oversees a small gallery space, and has brought out a quirky little collection of found Polaroid photographs. Give this man a hand!
