UPS just dropped off a big heavy box and inside was the fourth edition of The Book of Rowing, the “omnibus” guide to the sport I wrote in the late 80s. Twenty years later and the book is still in print. Seeing a new edition, with a new cover, makes me want to sit down and write another book in my copious spare time.
Thanks to my editor, Juliet Graemes, at The Overlook Press, for giving the book a new look and lease on life. Amazon has it here. Don’t ask me why I went for “D.C.” instead of David for the byline. I guess some affectation in the hope I would turn into E.M. Forster or e.e. cummings.
