A correspondent writes:
“I took my copy of We All Fall Down to Poet’s Corner yesterday, and laid it on the black slab above Dr Johnson’s grave to let him the know the boy had made good, as requested. They don’t allow picture taking inside Westminster, or I would send along a picture of it. There were two docents and one priest all looking at me. I got my eldest to block the docents’ view, but the guy in the dog collar wasn’t going anywhere. Westminster is pretty inspiring.”
I blush to admit that I actually asked the guy to do this. It is the first and no doubt the last time my novel will be connected with Samuel Johnson. Though I hope to get back and have my picture taken with Hodge for my next author photo.
