Are you Russell Brand?

The first of the three scheduled book signings took place at Waterstone’s at the Trafford Centre this afternoon. Thanks to Kate and the rest of the staff – and to everyone who bought a copy of the Gangs of Manchester. There will be a few scuttlers tumbling out of stockings around Manchester come Christmas morning. Thanks, too, to the woman who came over to the table to ask: “Are you Russell Brand?” She made my afternoon. I wasn’t Alan Titchmarsh, either – his signing was the previous day.

Next up: Waterstone’s in Manchester city centre (Deansgate branch), at two o’clock next Saturday, 22 November. Just don’t ask for J. K. Rowling. She’s the Saturday after.
