100%: A Thank You

I am delighted to announce that My Mother, the Bearded Lady, has hit its target and will now go into production. Here is a personal message from Caroline Kington:

'On Miles’s behalf, I would like to thank all those who have supported this project and helped me fulfil my promise to my beloved husband. He never took his professional writing for granted. Although he wrote every day, he never ‘just dashed something off’ and would be offended at the suggestion. In his letter writing, he was much more relaxed and whimsical, often exploring ideas and stories which might, later, reappear reworked in an article or column. They are a delight to read and I am so glad that with the encouragement of Unbound, the help of Jo, Michael and Stephanie and the commitment of so many people, these letters can be enjoyed by all.'

I will soon be heading down to Bath to help Caroline select the letters that will go into the book. It will be some time before the printed volume arrives through your letterbox, we have a lot of work to do before that happens, but we now know that it will exist, because of you, and we are hugely grateful.

Thank you.
