Carlton, thank you for your review of Graham Greene's A Sort of Life. I am a latecomer to Slightly Foxed but now hold Copy No. 1,762 of this book. I am much looking forward to this and my new subscription to the Slightly Foxed Quarterly.

Now, if I can only get through my Folio Society To Be Read stack I should be fine.

Hi Carlton,

I wanted to thank you for adding mine to your interesting libraries. I see we share quite a lot of books, so will gladly do the same for you.

All the best,
