A Perfect Waiter...

I must have read this book, A Perfect Waiter, more than a year ago. I bought it in hardback, but it's now in paperback and The Guardian critic has called it a 'small masterpiece' and 'elegant'. It is both. However, one thing that I've been meaning to post on lately is the fact that both hardbacks and paperbacks are too often reviewed as separate books by the same publication, thus giving them two shots at publicity, and leaving many more books struggling to even get one review! And those that are reviewed both in hardback and paperback are also too often by the same 'group' of writers. I think reviews by each literary section should decide which they will review - hardback or paperback - but not both.
