Fat Paperback Date? News Posted by John Hoare on 8th July 2007, 15:45 Can’t be sure about this one, but both Waterstone’s and WH Smith are listing the paperback edition of Fat as due for release on the 12th July – that’s next Thursday. The Orion Books site lists it for release simply in July, and stupidly, Amazon still lists the release as unpublished, but due 1st June. So unless it’s been put back, 12th July looks likely. If you haven’t read it, why not read our review of the book? Taking note of the apology for the Google result that haunts me EVERY TIME I RESEARCH PUBLICATION DATES.
