My family used to take long car trips, mostly to visit relatives. On them, my mother would often read books to us. She read many James Harriet books, though not, I think, that one, so I have long had a soft spot for him. Later, when I met my wife in Russia, I found out that he'd been a popular author in the late Soviet Union, after he'd visited there, and some of his books were translated into Russian. I thought that was nice, too.
