My first scholarly monograph, href="http://books.cambridge.org/0521819075.htm">The Age of Elizabeth in the
Age of Johnson
, has rocketed to the 1.6 millionth bestseller (up from
1.8 millionth a few weeks ago) on href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0521819075/qid=1049634908/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_1/103-0535740-6787819?v=glance&s=books&n=507846">Amazon.com.
(Stop presses! — now it’s zoomed up to the 1.49 millionth! Take that,
Distributional Ecology and Abundance of Dung and Carrion-Feeding Beetles
(Scarabaeidae) in Tropical Rain Forests in Sarawak, Borneo
, still mired at a
pitiful number 1.596 million.) A big movie deal now seems inevitable. Buy it now
and you can say you knew me before I was rich and famous. —Jack Lynch
