    I thought it would be good to include a page of the manuscript – although I haven’t decided which one yet – because there are so many pencil and biro marks, comments and crossings out and reinstated lines. For myself, I’m always interested to see what other writers do, and how they reach their finished work. Or where it has been abandoned. A nice thing, too, because a page like that is unique. I always keep the hard-copy manuscript drafts, and usually would not think of showing anyone. So that was the thinking behind that.
