With the best of intentions I have not been able to keep up the rate that would see me finish the first draft of Me ‘n’ Pete: Recalling a Fifties Childhood by July. Another (necessary) writing task has intervened to distract me. It will be a couple of months before I can get back to Me ‘n’ Pete. I hope to have the first draft finished by the end of the year. The later chapters (1954 onwards) are requiring a lot more research than I anticipated.
Duncan McLaren’s third amusing excursion with Evelyn Waugh is now on Duncan’s website HERE. This time it’s to Waugh’s champagne party in his room at the Hyde Park Hotel, Tuesday 6 August 1946 – a couple of weeks after I was born.
