[UPDATE Wednesday: Book Depository now appears to be out of stock (? That situation appears to be changeable too), but check Amazon.de (Germany). As of now, the German edition is not in stock but listed as shipping within 5 to 9 days, but Amazon.de has the original English version in stock ("auf Lager"). Just search for "here far away" from the front page, or for the book's ISBN, 1907893261. —Mike (thanks to Christoph and Sebastian)]
I don't have any inside info at all this time, but it's possible Amazon U.S. might not be getting copies of Here Far Away after all. The book has been too popular in Britain and I guess is going to sell out the much larger second printing in Europe, even without providing Amazon U.S. with stock.
This will involve a great many cancelled orders, including many from TOP readers. All I can tell you is that the publisher told me the book would be coming to the U.S. and Amazon would have stock. Amazon U.S. has been cancelling outstanding orders this morning. I'm doing my best to provide accurate information about this title, but it's been very hard to come by all along.
Best bet now is The Book Depository.
So, to those of you who've been lucky enough to get your hands on a copy: what do you think?

Godfrey: "I obtained my copy from The Book Depository a week ago. Absolutely stunning book. I showed it to a few friends, eight of whom immediately ordered a copy. This book is a rare gem. It was worth the hassle and wait in obtaining it."
