"Surely they'll eventually send you a copy. "

I don't know. I've ordered it from two different book people before Christmas only to have the order cancelled by both. Now, I notice that June is a new release date, so, maybe.

When I was in Montreal (over 3 months) last year, I enquired 3 different times about a book that was 'published,' but not in stock, and not able to be ordered. Kind of funny I thought. 2 of the staffers couldn't explain it, but I eventually found an old woman staffer who told me that perhaps the publisher wouldn't let it go because of legal concerns, or perhaps the author wanted to make a few changes. That implied the book hadn't been printed. She shrugged and mumbled something about the book business these days. It didn't seem odd to her. I was in Montreal again in January, and the book was available, but I passed. I'll look for it again one day.
