    Dear Pia,

    If that isn’t the cutest bookshop ever! A perfect setting for your first literary outing in Ozland. I hope it’s a smash!

    Hi Pia!

    I’m afraid my desire to leave work early was replaced by the inevitability of having to work late (stupid deadlines), so I can’t make it tonight. C’est la vie! I hope it all goes wonderfully well!

    Wish I could escape chilly Toronto & pop in for a (iced!) tea. I will be buying your book before my trip to Paris in May. Yippee!

    Dear Pia
    How lovely to see a little piece of 52 Suburbs on your site! I still can’t quite believe the old factory I used to walk past every day when I lived in Newtown is now such a flash place. Hope you had fun in its old/new walls and bon chance with the book – it’s beautiful!
    Louise, from

    Wish I could have been there to meet you in person and have you sign the perfect petite “Paris made by hand”.
    Have a wonderful time, and let us know if you will have one in Europe again when you get back:)

    oh pia! if only i could have come! i was there only a few days before (to see the one and only florence welch in concert) and after a morning of confusion with trains (two sixteen year old girls alone in the city and public transport do not mix well) we made it to newtown to have a lovely spot of shopping! newtown is so glorious – im from port macquarie, i’m not sure if you would know? it’s just up north of sydney and has nothing that compares to the wonders of newtown. did you by any chance visit creame? oh how i love it! – but anyway, i would have loved to come and get my book signed by you lovely lady, but perhapse i will be luckier another time. hope all is wonderful. x
