It would seem that we have more than just a common language separating us from the Brits. We also have a staggeringly different view of what constitutes an interesting read. Seriously, would any US publisher have paid a million dollars for a Roger Moore bio? And then there's today's headlines about George Michael being signed to what HarperCollins UK refers to as "one of the biggest book deals ever." Wtf? Don't be surprised to find the first stateside shipments of these books bobbing about in Boston Harbor like so much English Breakfast tea.
