Your PV'd 'The Art of Richard Powers' deleted

Your PV'd publication The Art of Richard Powers has been deleted as it was a duplicate of this record, and you were the sole verifier. In addition, the pubisher confirmed by mail on 23JUN2020 that there was no US edition, only the UK edition was ever printed.
