The Golden Child

Some time before Christmas, I was approached out of the blue by an editor at Harper Collins and asked if I would consider writing an introduction to a new paperback edition of Penelope Fitzgerald’s first novel, The Golden Child.   I accepted because I am a great admirer of The Blue Flower and my interest was piqued.   It’s a novel about the internal workings of the British Museum.   My text was more severely edited than anything I have ever written and a passage was deleted at the request of the company lawyers.   Now, only a few months later, the edition has appeared.
