[Owl to Professor Lupin, in response to this owl]
Professor Lupin -
Thank you very much for the book. No, Kerouac is most definitely "my thing", as you put it, and my own copy is falling apart. You have a good idea for matching books to people, I think. Thank you.

PS One good book deserves another, so here - though I wouldn't be suprised if you've read this one, too.
[Enclosed: a somewhat less battered but obviously well-loved signed, first edition copy of Jeff Noon's novel Vurt, with a sheath of notes stuck in the middle, half typed up on an old typewriter and half hand-scrawled, including the first four pages of a short story written in somewhat similar style.]
