The funny thing

about some of John Crace's "digested reads" for the Guardian is that they are in a style virtually indistinguishable from the original, because the original is already almost self-parody: delightfully, this week he digests Wicked! by Jilly Cooper. Oh, I want this book so badly! Last week I almost threw fiscal responsibility to the winds and ordered it from Amazon UK, but it wasn't shipping until May 3 and I actually got worried about whether it would arrive before I left (and also, seriously, I just do not need another book that will then have to be shipped back to NY). Now I wish I had just pre-ordered it and taken my chances!
