New Model Army signing

By Adam Roberts | May 4, 2010
Categories: Book News, Events and Appearances, Reviews

I'll be signing copies of New Model Army at Waterstones in High Wycombe, on Saturday the 15th May from 11am. Unaccountably, High Wycombe somehow escaped the depredations of my NMA in the novel itself, although nearby Maidenhead gets hammered. Perhaps the good citizens of High Wycombe wish to thank me for sparing their borough ...?

There have been some other reviews. I was particularly pleased with this David Hebblethwaite review:

I can safely say that New Model Army is like no other book Iíve ever read. I know this because I have no name for the feeling I was left with after Iíd finished it. Thatís a recommendation, by the way.

That's exactly what I'm trying to do when I write fiction!

    Hello Adam. I don't know how many punters turned up for your High Wycombe signing, but when I ambled in at a couple of minutes past 11 I suspect I was the first. Since I didn't know in advance that you would be there I had not refreshed my memory of what you have written, so apologies for the rather inane conversation. When I went to pay for my precious signings even the bloke on the till displayed lack of awareness. "Oh, he's coming in later." Fortunately another member of staff pointed out that you had in fact materialised already. Somewhat ashamed of Wycombe's lack of enthusiasm, I sneaked back the following day and bought a couple more of your books. I suggest that since you missed destroying Wycombe in NMA, in a future book you cause something *really* nasty to happen to it.
    Anyway, I'm greatly enjoying YBT. Thanks for the variety of your books, and also for not writing 900 page door stoppers.
