    Dear Linda, I wanted to tell you what a huge fan I am of yours. I’ve just finished The Clothes on Our Backs, which I found ( I know you’ll hate this, but.. ) in an antique shop in Devon; Upstairs at the Party has really haunted me.. I think because we are nearly the same vintage and all your descriptions of clothes from the Forties dresses and platforms to the punk eraa and all the transitions and noises off, what the boys were like, what Leeds University was like ( in my case) are exact exact exact. In the case of The Clothes… the Anti Nazi League and Rock Against Racism ..skinheads NF and all that — horrific that it’s back. Anyway I’m very glad I looked this up to find you have another book to enjoy. Best wishes and thank you Sarah Mower
