I've been reading his autobiography, in which he writes about coming to work at the university in the early 1960s (he's a Londoner). It's odd to think that this happened when I was at junior school, as he's one of my favourite novelists. We used to refer to places like Edgbaston as "the other side of town."
He was also one of the writers of a revue that was put on at the Rep. in 1963, which was some time before I started going there.
