Canterbury music legend (he’d hate that description!) Robert Wyatt features several times in the book, so I thought I’d better send him a copy. I was overcome with joy to hear back from him not once, but several times, expressing his gratitude and abundant enthusiasm for the book. First, this showed up via the Inamorata Press contact form:

…then, after some correspondence…
“i know who came to mind, reading your history. It’s one [nearly said ‘giant’ but that’s a bit hyperbolic!] step beyond Bill Bryson . It’s a great achievement old son. Respect.
