BELGIUM STILL EXISTS AND ITS PRIME MINISTER LIKES MY NOVEL

Holy crap! Someone alerted me that the Belgian prime minister has a blog, on which he just reviewed (Dutch/French) Omega Minor. (Favorably. Otherwise, I wouldn't mention it.)

I kid you not. I hail from a country where the Big Guy (a) reads novels ('a lot', he says), and (b) reviews them on his blog. In two languages.

OK, I dabble in politics, which I review on my blog, so we're even.

Still.

Here in the US, we're still waiting on G. W. Bush's review of L'Etranger. He started it in 2006. Should be done by now.

By the way, does Belgium's King Albert have a blog, and does he read novels?
