HOW on EARTH had I not yet heard about this???
With quotes like this one...
"Have your ninjas left you?"
"We never had any ninjas."
"No ninjas! How was that possible? Five daughters brought up at home without any ninjas! I never heard of such a thing. Your mother must have been quite a slave to your safety."
Elizabeth could hardly help smiling as she assured her that had not been the case. (126)
...how can I not buy this book, I ask you? The simple answer is, I can't. I just bought a copy at Powells, damnit.
