Thanks Colin. I really enjoyed interviewing Deborah and her complete resistance to cliché and her frankness.

We also spent quite a lot of time chuckling, despite the difficult content.

And I hope she does more work about her memories and childhood. The photo in this week's blog, of her childhood self and new bike is fascinating.

Very enjoyable read, Anne. I love the grittiness and honesty of this piece. I can relate to this interview so well. I've cupboards and a whole room full of 'art' but the question of what to do with it all, is something else entirely.
