She has a quote published on page 3 of the Guardian today!  And on the website.

Nice one! I recommend a google image search for the manuscript to see what the fuss is about, the Guardian article doesn't do it justice.

Well done that lass!

I gather that the name of the manuscript doesn't really derive from that of a Polish bookseller but is Alsacien from voy a corruption of voire, to see or, indirectly, to understand; and nichts, the German for nowt.

Seeing the title of this thread brought back memories of a day in the late 1980s when a work colleague of mine came into the office saying exactly the same thing but brandishing a much smaller newspaper.  It was very unsettling to see his obvious pride as the men in the office commented on his 18 year-old daughter's breasts  ???

I'm not sure it trumps it, but it almost certainly Trump's it: Around that time I had a similar where a colleague shared his pride (along with printed content) that his girlfriend was now a model for, er, um, Readers Wives..
