Today, July 9, 2013, What We Found in the Sofa is being published in New Zealand! But since New Zealand is on the other side of the International Date Line, the book was actually published yesterday. Or maybe tomorrow. Or possibly last Thursday. Anyway, it's out, and if you're a Kiwi reading this, or even the last surviving Moa, hiding from tourists on the Milford Track, grab yourself a copy and settle in.
In a weird coincidence, this is also the day the book is being published in New Zealand's antipodal location. An antipodal location - a place's "antipodes" - is the location on the globe diametrically opposite the original location. For New Zealand, this place is an island off the coast of France. I'm hoping there's at least one bookstore there.
