On my way to Jack Romanos‘s retirement party Tuesday night, I stopped by the Little Inn, where Canadian television personality Louisa McCormack was celebrating the release of her first novel, Six Weeks to Toxic, in the US. We’re laughing here over her explanation of how the weakness of the American dollar means that it’s approaching a 1-to-1 relationship with its Canadian counterpart—which is incredibly frustrating to Canadian book buyers who are saddled with all those now exorbitant price tags on American books. Apparently there’ve even been incidents of “book rage” in Canadian shops over the pricing issues.
