That’s not the poem though
It's the special thingy enclosed by Faber and Faber after mistakenly advertising limited edition copies through their own site.

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

Received my offering from Faber and Faber. The corner of my book is slightly bent due to posting in a poly bag bubble wrap thing. The same postcard was included (let's face it it's a postcard - it may be an artisan postcard hand knitted by Neil, but how can we ever really know!?)

Hand bound and signed by THE THE author?!

And he signed that 505 times? :-o
Also, it seems to imply that Neil bound the books himself...
Thanks for this. You'll find the proofreading thread popping up again!

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

Faber and Faber is clearly the publishing equivalent of EMI. Hello there— I'm afraid I'm writing with bad news. You recently ordered a copy of a special edition of Neil Tennant's One Hundred Lyrics and a Poem (9780571351572) from faber.co.uk. But we made a mistake. The particular version of the boo...

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

Sorry, this is going to sound really thick - I had the impression that Neil was going to do a book signing too last night. - Did he? Also, no one has mentioned Neil's book. Is it any good etc? :?: I should have said to those who went - I hope you had a lovely time. It seems that the signing itself ...

Regular hardback signed copies via Waterstones for £14.99.

The unsigned copies will be rarer at this rate... :wink:

Re: Trevor Horn - London show with special guests

I got tickets, don't know what to expect. I've bought one too. I saw Trevor's supergroup "The Producers" a few years ago now at Barfly. He likes playing covers of the hits with which he's associated either as a player or producer! Expect Slave to the Rhythm, Two Tribes and Video Killed the Radio St...
