Reviewer misses point of Quantum City reality

It is with amused shock that I read Liz Bailey's review of my book Quantum City (AJ 13.2.03). Actually, I believe she did judge it by its cover - or as she admits - by its typesetting. It is clear to me she did not in fact read it at all. I always use the reaction to the typesetting to sieve out who has followed the thread of the book and who has merely flicked through it.
