I recently bought a copy of Richard Dawkins’ excellent book “The God Delusion”. Glancing over Lydia asked me what it said on the front cover after ‘AUTHOR OF T’, the rest having been obscured by the large shop label.
Rather smartly I answered ‘well maybe “The Selfish Gene or The Blind Watchmaker”‘.
Tonight, noticing that neither would fit completely under the label given the size of the font, I carefully peeled back the sticker to find the rest of the sentence.
‘Author of the Year 2007’
