Right Trees Created using Figma


Thursday, 21 January 2016

OK, so what has been happening in the last few weeks is that I - or rather Ms Lupu at Unbound - have been strenuously trying to get permission to use various quotations and pictures.  The restraints are ridiculous.  Many of the quotes I want are actually my father's words quoted by others....  All very trying.  Still Ms Lupu and I have done pretty well, I think, and the book should have at least a few pictures to aid the reading.  The book has now gone off to the typesetter, which makes me feel vaguely nauseous.  I keep thinking of things that should and shouldn't have gone into it.  And I know that it doesn't really do justice to its subject.  But there we are.  The thing is almost done.  Due for publication on May 5th, two days before Dad's 100th birthday.  I have yet to hear from the BBC that they will mark this in any way.
