    Met Heathcote in 75, strange dude .
    Sad to see his passing , from what I can remember he did smoke ciggys a lot and inhale rather deeply , if he continued smoking as much ,then he’s fortunate to have lasted so long .
    Kind regards young lady

    Dear Susan,

    I’m coming to the end of my PhD which has focused on the writing of Ithell Colquhoun, Leonora Carrington and Claude Cahun. Disavowals has been my focus with Claude and I’m reading it again just now in English (I love it) – and it struck me that I should be telling you how much I’ve enjoyed your translation of the book. It’s such a gem of a work and that has to be down to your way of conveying it!

    Thanks very much and all the best!

    Stephen (Sunderland)
