Unfortunately I can't see many bookshops stocking it (their loss). I think even Waterstones said they would get it from the publisher, meaning you had to order it. However the ROH shop is stocking it when it reopens in September and if you're a Friend, presumably you can get your 10% off.

 

I was going to ask if the ROH Shop would be re-opening soon, I'll be able to take a look at it and get 10% discount, his reviews often made me laugh.

I ordered mine through Waterstones at least a month ago and haven't had mine yet, it still says the order's processing, and has taken longer than the 15 days they estimated it would take to get the book from the publisher.

My copy arrived today but as I own a bookshop I was able to order it direct from our main supplier. It is a sumptuous volume with lots of photographs and loads to read. Our supplier is showing that they have 49 copies in stock so start complaining if you haven't received your copy yet.

Mine has not even been dispatched. Payment to Waterstones made on 24 August. I live in Washington, DC...paid for intl dispatching. I’m sure that it will be worth the wait (& weight). 😆 

Completely agree re. wait and weight. I have written to Waterstone Customer Support, perhaps there will be a reply.

“This item is no longer available.” That’s the message that I get when clicking within Waterstones’ receipt-email to view status of order...yet PayPal took my £42 for book + intl shipping on 24 August. I’ll give it another two weeks before cancelling the order and requesting a refund. Hey, I tried...I love to support dance authors/historians. :)

That does not sound too promising. I received an email today telling me, that payment had been made the day before and that the book was now prepared for shipping. At least the reminder has set someting in motion, hopefully not just the payment...

Clement Crisp Reviews, the book.

 

The publishers apologise to ballet lovers regarding the late delivery of this book to our distributors, Troubador Books. First staff at the the printers (S Wales) were COVID-pinged  and later those at the binders (W Wales) likewise.

 

If you have ordered through the distributor, Troubador Books, and your book is overdue please email them at  order@troubador.co.uk with your name, order number, how many copies ordered and delivery address. 

 

Yes, the book is big  -  it was hard to say no to so many good articles - and I understand deliveries will be made by courier. 

 

Bookshops are now stocking the book but we guarantee the ROH shop will NEVER run out of stock, certainly not on Monday 4 October, the Friends rehearsal of Romeo & Juliet. 

 

For bookshops still without stock, email to   tradeorders@troubador.co.uk

It really shouldn't be necessary to keep on contacting Troubador. Orders should be on their records and need to be fulfilled.

For any members in the UK who are having difficulty obtaining a copy of this book I can arrange for it to be delivered directly to your home or place of work. I run an independent bookshop in Mid Wales and can get our main supplier to send the book directly to you. As a member of this forum I am happy to supply the book postage free to other members. If you are interested please message me. There are other members of the forum who know me and I hope would be willing to vouch for me, so that you know this is not a scam.

I can absolutely vouch for Pulcinella.  I first met her around 30 or so years ago at the Birmingham Hippodrome.

My copy of the book was supposedly delivered on the 9th September - but not to me. I have been sent a photo 'proving' its delivery which shows it leaning against the side of a door which is not mine!

Oh dear.  What a saga!  I hope you get it soon.

I’ve just received an email from Waterstones about my order. It’s been dispatched, with a link to Royal Mail tracking! 🥳 ✈️ 👑 

 

Fingers crossed Jeanette.

Oh no, that's awful Capybara.  I hope you can get it sorted soon.
