Cambridge days

CAM, the magazine for Cambridge alumni, profiles biographer and publisher Nicola Beauman who founded Persephone Books. She gets all misty eyed about the architecture students of her epoch. ‘The man I fell in love with is an architect, Nick Lacey, so I hung out with some of the exceptional architects in his year like Robin Nicholson, Spencer de Grey and Peregrine Bryant.’ Ah, halcyon days … although evidently the gilt wore off, since her second husband was an economist. Evidently nobody told her that an architect is not just for Cambridge.
