I was saddened to hear the news of FM’s passing, not that I met her face-to-face.
I bought a copy of the Gill biography when it was issued in paperback in 1990. [The hardback came out a year earlier and was reprinted three times.]
However, I can record a connection with FM, through correspondence in May 1990, which are included within the biography just pulled from my library shelves.
She was living at The Round Building, Sheffield and I had sent a letter to her publishers, Faber&Faber in London about some project I was then conceiving. [I do not have my letter sent.] I never took up her advice – though I may have written to Michael Richey, as she gave his address. I will report back.
