I live in Iceland. But would love to "adopt" your copy of David Watkin's book. Could I twist your arm by offering your some books by Laxness instead? :)

I would love to read that. I worked on two of his films (Night Falls on Manhattan and Gloria) and his books are hard to get. I would gladly pay for shipping.

If you want the hardback version of his autobiography, "Why Is There Only One Word for Thesaurus?" I picked up a copy at the UK Panavision shop. Alternately if you seek the expanded paperback version "Was Clara Schumann a Fag Hag?" try contacting Chris Mullen who with Rachel Adams administers the David Watkin website at www.davidwatkin.co.uk
