It’s been great fun to watch “Losering” slowly make its way into the world and turn up in some very distant lands. I happened upon it recently in a couple of places on the far side of the world, Australia and New Zealand. In the case of the former, the book can now be found in the National Library of Australia; in the stacks at Ward Library on the University of Western Sydney’s Penrith Campus, to be precise (and if anybody down there is reading this, please send a picture!).
To the east of Australia, meanwhile, an online vendor called Mighty Ape NZ’s listing of New Zealand’s “Best Selling Film, Television & Music Books” has “Losering” right next to a couple of memoirs — Monica Mayhem’s “Absolute Mayhem: Confessions of a Porn Star,” and Keith Richards’ “Life.” I hope Ryan is as honored by the placement as I am. And even if he’s not, well, I’m sure Keef would just say that it’s all just showbiz. It is, eh?
