After three long years of packing, taping, boxing, crating and shipping ver 130 crates of materials from Paris – letters from David Bowie’s people, Sylvia Beach, Alex Trocchi – to miles of taped conversations with the likes of John Lennon & James Baldwin – to name a very few – I’ve finally managed to get a significant part of Edinburgh & Paris literary/theatre history housed at Edinburgh Napier University.
We’ve set up a web site: ChezJimHaynes.com and just had a sold-out launch at the Edinburgh Book Festival. We’ll be curating events as we actively bring this amazing trove of history forward for online access and public display.
Phew. Stay tuned.
