    Charles – I hope you don’t mind me asking, and feel free not to respond – but do you have a particular blockbuster in your stable that subsidises some of the slower sellers? I’m thinking of The Colorado Kid but I might be way off. I remember a writer of very literary, navel-gazing (albeit amusing) books saying once at a reading how he is indebted to Stephen king for giving his publishers enough money to waste on his first two books. (He had to find another publisher after they tanked.)
