Do They Mean Us? Reactions to the book
Well, it's a month since our book was published and we thought we'd post an update on how it's been going.
We were honoured that Today South London, Tomorrow South London was listed in the Evening Standard's Best Comedy Books of 2018 (see below), as well as being featured in Londonist, Lewisham Ledger (also pictured below), South London Press, Southwark News and, Half-life's favourite, London Drinker.
"Essentially, Fear and Loathing meets The Good Beer Guide." - Skirky
The book is already, incredibly, on its third print run. If you enjoyed it, do please leave your own review and spread the word. It helps a lot and we'd be very grateful. Dirty South said he'll buy you a pint.
We've also done a World Tour of readings, including Brixton BookJam, Catford's Blythe Hill Tavern, The Pelton Arms in Greenwich and Bookseller Crow in Crystal Palace, where one lucky punter was able to get his book inscribed:
The only real blip has been the enforced withdrawal of our Christmas TV advert due to a ruling that it "normalises harmful activity" and "promotes indolence". What a sad indictment of today's "nanny state". We stand with Iceland and Greenpeace on this matter and have started to begin thinking about writing a stern letter to someone or other.
And if you've already got a copy, why not buy a friend one for Christmas? We all know someone who needs to buck their ideas up, right?
Merry Christmas and thank you for supporting TSLTSL!

UPDATE: The book has now gone Top Ten Bestseller in Amazon UK Travel. Thank you all!
