Dear all,


As you’ll see, John is in town from Rhode Island and has a busy schedule ahead.  Good luck to him!  It’s a great book.


Here are his engagements:-


‘First, I am appearing on Radio 4’s Midweek programme with Libby Purves on Wednesday, February 8 at 9:00 am; repeated at 9:30 pm the same day.


Second,Terrance Gelenter, in Paris, did an interview with me recently and put it out through his newsletter on Friday, February 3rd. The interview covered my memoir, Darling Baby Mine, but also included pieces on my time as a foreign correspondent with the Observer and previous books on the Nigerian Civil War and the Olympia Press, which included the discovery of the true author of Story of O, solving a forty-year-old literary mystery. His newsletter has 8,000 followers. I have asked him to send me a direct link to the interview but haven’t heard anything yet. I’ll pass it on when I have it. His newsletter is reachable


Third, my Oxford Literary Festival gig is on March 30 at 10:00 am.
