Incidently the photo on the front cover of 'Let's be alone together' was taken by meself and is probably the best book cover in the world-ever-and that's official as in The Guineys book of bollix. More shockingly it was also one of the many images I lost in the Dell from Hell black Tuesday disaster of 2008 ,the biggest single disaster to strike Ireland since Keano walked out in Saipan *
