I always love hearing from readers, but some requests are more unusual than others. I received this letter from Germany on Friday.
They also enclosed copies of verses they’ve received from Doris Lessing and Patrick Modiano, both writers I particularly admire (as well as the minor detail of being Nobel prize winners). Obviously this has been going for some time, as Doris Lessing died three years ago – and equally obviously, I could not have said No even if I’d wanted to!
Now I have to choose one to send off with this bonus photo – which one would you vote for? Let me know in the comments below.
I presume they knew me through these rather lovely editions of Nim's Island and Raven's Mountain.
