Hello again! It's been a while between posts. Today I'm reposting a letter I wrote to a friend who was living in the US. It's a little long but quite entertaining. Last time I posted it I shrunk it too much and it was virtually illegible. It continues rather nicely from my last blog post about meeting Patrick Gale at the Melbourne Writers Festival.

  1. You are incorrigible, Hariklia! You knew what you wanted and went for it, and you have my kudos for doing it (and sharing your adventures with us now)! By the way, I love your letterhead (self-designed, I assume). Very, very cool. Did you ever write or talk to Vikram again?

    1. The worst part is I keep doing this sort of thing! - despite motherhood, wife-dom and old age!!

      Thanks and yes, self-designed. I decided to post the letterhead bit as it was several addresses ago.

      I think I did write to him once, but he never responded. Then a few years ago I went to see him being interviewed, with Craig, but didn't hang about to say hello - though I was tempted to.
