(Just to be clear, I photoshopped the cover a bit.)
A year ago, I had just signed with my agent Caren. Next week WAIW? will be featured in TIME Magazine.
But you can read TIME’s review of WAIW? now. It’s not a very long review, but it’s a nice one. As I’ve done with other reviews, here are some highlights:
“…a quixotic journey…often loopy…all over the developing world…Timmerman’s youthful exuberance carries this unlikely consumer tale.”
The issue doesn’t come out until next week. However, I can assure you that I didn’t make the cover. But this guy did. And that’s perhaps more exciting.
It’s not just any old issue of TIME. It’s a commemorative one! That means years from now, it will be stuffed in attics across the world. Grandparents will dust it off to show their grandchildren. “See this,” they’ll say. “I was alive when the world changed.”
The 90-word write-up of WAIW? couldn’t have appeared in a cooler issue.
