Interesting Book Trailer

He’s not the first author I think of when someone mentions book trailers. I think it’s great, don’t get me wrong. But it just doesn’t seem very… him. Not that I know him, only his books. Maybe that’s it then. It just doesn’t seem something you’d do with his books, something you could do with his books. (Something inside says, ‘You didn’t sell out, did you, Mr H?’ But then I know it was probably thought up by some marketing intern hyped up on chai-lattes screaming, ‘I don’t care what it’s about, what is its essence?’ Still, that would be the final irony for me: if this suddenly went commercial.)
