Woo-hoo! Another good review! Jules' Book Reviews comes through! Duckworth is very busy this summer trying to find a new commissioning editor; I haven't heard from them directly, but as far as Amazon is concerned, the US paperback edition will be out at the end of August.

War on the Margins  was reviewed in the Daily Mail a few weeks ago (not in their online version; the print review is reproduced here).
