Summary of contents

A series of correspondence between LC and Graham McEwan of New House Publishers about the use of LC’s poem ‘Silent Generations’ in a play by Diane Bardsley. LC also uses the correspondence to propose his novel ‘A Secret Life’, which McEwan dismisses on the basis that New House Publishers exclusively caters to a secondary school market. The correspondence occurred between July 2996 and March 1998.
