Following on from my last blog re the non event of St. Jude, I can report that the storm had an affect on the recent book launch of Simon Thurley's The Building of England held in the town hall at Kings Lynn (surely the most stunning of town halls in the country). It was the first book launch that I have attended where there were actually no books. This, it was revealed was not due to a mishap by the publisher or indeed the author, but to St Jude. The books, printed in China were on their way to this country when they met the storm which blew all the containers into the sea, the bottom of which they are now lying.
