Gideon Rachman

Why is this day unlike any other? I can think of a few reasons.

1. It is my 47th birthday.

2. It is Tony Blair’s 57th birthday.

3. It is the day on which my brother Tom’s novel got an absolute rave review in the New York Times, rocketing him up to number four on Amazon in the US. You can buy the book here.

4. My colleague, Lucy Kellaway, points out that it is also the day on which her novel is published in Britain. I’m sure it too will get raves. You can buy it here.

5. And last of all, it is election day here in Britain.
