I enjoyed the very recognisable pictures of Martin Pawley (AJ 02.06.05), but don't let's forget his essay-length pieces for Blueprint - for my money sometimes his very best writing.

Also, lurking within the irascible one, is a very generous person. I once put his slides into the carousel for a lecture at the AA. Every single one was back to front. He carried on cheerfully.

Another time, I got a phone call one February evening while my self-organised lecture tour of the US was falling to bits.

'Can you hear me?' came the voice down a crackling line from Tallahassee. 'Get here by 20 April and you'll be visiting scholar for the week.' I did, and the fee paid for the entire trip.
