Diaries II USA Release date? by wessock on 12 November 2009 8:00am
 
None of the retailers have any information and I can't seem to find any online either, but does anybody happen to know when Michael's 2nd Diaries volume will be released in the US? I would have thought they'd want to release it in time for the Christmas shopping season but they'd probably have announced a date by now. I loved the first volume and am really eager to start on the second. Thanks

Thanks for your enquiry,wesock. Whereabouts in the States are you located? ..Are you in New York City??

I phoned BORDERS Bookshop on Wall Street,in the heart of the busy financial hub of America,located at 100 Broadway,New York,NY 10005.

After waiting a good while,the assistant returned and told me they do have in stock 3 Michael Palin Book titles: SAHARA; HEMINGWAY'S CHAIR; and DIARIES:1969-1979,but that's all. She informed me they also stock several Michael Palin titles in audio-cassette format.

That's nice to know for other fans, but Wes is looking for the Diaries II volume, bIG.

Wouldn't it be good if this site had a section for official notifications for book releases and signings, appearances etc? Like a calender? *hint hint Webbie*

Why can't you order it from amazon.co.uk ?

I had thought about buying it on amazon.co.uk if the book will be delayed in the US for a while, but only as a last resort because it's a lot more expensive that way for somebody living in the states. Plus, I'm sure his US fans would also like to know the answer to the release date since I'm sure a lot of them would like to read the book as well.

It's available in Canada. Order from Amazon.ca. It's about $25 Canadian.

Thanks voxpops, I didn't know that. That's weird though. Maybe they (Michael/the publisher) are waiting for a US release for when Michael can do a publicity/signing tour.

Anyway, ended up ordering a copy on ebay for $15 with shipping included so I'm happy.
