A SPECIAL COPY
Last week I travelled to London to give Kathleen Herbert a copy of her new book. After her recent trauma of breaking a hip, and a lengthy stay in hospital, she is now living in sheltered accommodation. She received us like a queen, and basked in the admiration of friends and staff as I handed her her own copy of Moon in Leo, inscribed with our names: with love from her publisher, editor and designer. She sat frail but upright, looking tiny and ethereal, and enquiring after our doings.
