How to buy ‘Memories’ in the USA

We are being asked by US visitors how and where they might be able to purchase the book. While we have a good distribution service in the UK – ‘Memories’ should be available at any good bookshop, as well as via Amazon.co.uk – we are still working on the question for North America in general and the United States in particular.  

In the States we have to rely for the moment on Amazon.com. But here’s a funny thing: if you click on their main site:

the book is quoted at $29.81 and shipping can take ‘from 4 to 7 weeks’.  HOWEVER, by going to ‘Used and New’:

you can find it listed at very advantageous prices, with speedy delivery. For instance, a brand new copy is being offered by the Book Depository – a widely-respected UK outfit – for $22.33 with $3.99 shipping: a total of $26.32. Delivery? ‘Usually 5-8 working days from order’.


That’s a wow. Convert the dollar price to sterling at today’s rate and it comes to £13. Look at Amazon.co.uk’s selling price in Britain and it is £14.24 before shipping costs.


Americans, you have a deal!
