So I take it all back. The Parisian publicist is a genius. What do I see in this week’s issue of Paris Match? A whole page about moi and my book. (Click here to view the article.).
As luck would have it, I had subscribed to Paris Match on the instructions of said genius publicist. So now I am famous among Paris Match readers which as far as I can make out is most of the French population. Along with Graham in Switzerland who wrote to me complaining that the cartoonist’s byline was the biggest thing on the page.
I was amazed last night when we went to a Beziers wine-bar to celebrate our great friend Simon’s birthday that I wasn’t mobbed by crowds of fans. I even brought my special pink pen for autographs with me.
I can only assume it’s because there was no photo of me in the article. I am sure this will all change next week when I am on the front cover of Vogue.
