Spitting blood!

So, after loving Lily Brett's 'You gotta have balls' I bought the other two books by her that amazon.co.uk sell. I had been a bit surprised that 'Uncomfortably close' appeared to have an almost identical cover to the balls book. But I thought that was maybe her house style.

The reason, I now discover, why the cover is virtually the same, is because it's the same frigging book! On the title page, in tiny writing it says 'previously published as 'you gotta have balls'. Why would they do a thing like that? Was the original title to offensive for sensitive American readers?

So now it needs to go back to amazon, at a not inconsiderable cost of postage. Not happy!
