My Mozart book gets Wikied

How does a writer know when he has arrived? It used to be a review in The New York Times signified public notice. Or for, let’s say, Soviet writers, it was a sentence to a Gulag. Well, I’ve been reviewed in The Times several times and I’ve been living in Jerusalem for 15 years (not quite Siberia, though close enough in some ways.) But yesterday it happened: one of my readers added my book to the Wiki of Maria Anna Mozart, who was known to her brother Wolfgang as Nannerl. She’s the main character in my new novel MOZART’S LAST ARIA, and I’m touched my work is part of her biography.
