I’ve known about this book edited by a colleague of mine, Roland Boer, for the better part of three years (publishing a collection of essays can take a long time) and have been anticipating it with unrelenting eagerness since my friend Thomas Thompson informed me of its status as ‘In Preparation’ some time ago.
