Where can you buy it?

Glad you asked. If you’re interested in grabbing a copy, these fine retail outlets should have it:

I also would encourage you to try your local independents. My own two favourites here in Perth are:

but there are great retailers everywhere, like Borderlands in San Francisco, Pulp Fiction in Brisbane, Slow Glass in Melbourne, all of whom would be happy to help you out.

If you do pick up the book, I hope you enjoy it.
