Anthony Burgess’s Journalism

One of the wonders of the Internet is that if someone has something you want, you can probably get it. For example, I have been trying to secure a copy of Anthony Burgess’s journalism and collected essays, a volume entitled Homage to Qwert Yuiop. The book is way too expensive through US sites such as Amazon, being long out of print and not easily available. I did find a seller in Sweden who had the British edition (the one I wanted) for sale for less than a dollar. So I snagged it. The American edition of this book, for some reason, is called But Do Blondes Prefer Gentlemen? — a thoroughly ridiculous title which I did not want gracing my bookshelves.
