its telling that Chaz mentions in his thankyous a nod to a cafe in Amsterdam. Might explain a few things.
The book has some amusing typographical errors; "sanitary" rather than "salutary" (unless this was a very poor attempt at a joke), "pallets" instead of "palates", and "foul" which are plucked. The Oxford English dictionary lists 7 alternative spellings of "cockatrice", so this book is inventive in adding "cockentrice" to that list.
It seems odd that references to "early reviews" should mention one published in 2006 (this can't have been "early", so was the date misprinted?). There were occasional references to names and facts with no explanation, and at times I reread the earlier pages, assuming that I hadn't been paying proper attention, but I found nothing. Presumably the author knew what he meant.
I noticed about 3-4 spelling mistakes in the first 10 minutes of reading.
Uninteresting disaster of a book
From now on I'm going to be cautious about biographies written by people who don't have much connection to the person they're writing about. I think it's usually a more personal and interesting read when they're autobiographies, written BY the person the book is about, or at least by a close relative or confidant.
