These writings, for the most part, consist of letters I wrote to friends when I lived in the Far East. 'Letters from the Morning of the World' are the five scripts I read on BBC Radio 4 in the 'Book at Bedtime' series. They were distillations of Christmas booklets I sent every year to my family and friends from my house in Bali.

'Music For Pleasure' first appeared as an article in The Times Literary Supplement. It was later republished in a book of essays 'Reviving the Muse: Essays on Music after Modernism' edited by Peter Davison and published by Claridge Press in 2001.
