James Mackay

The use of caps, and a collage, may have been a litle stylistic sub-series of biography. 2068 Trumpets from the Steep by Diana Cooper of 1964 shares the style (I'm emailing a scan to you); maybe there are others. Amusingly, it too is largely set in Paris, but in a different city, that of the British ambassador's wife, from that of de Beauvoir.


"Deux pingouins", not "deux pingouin"... and anyway, french word for a "penguin" is not "pingouin" but "manchot"...


Pardon me'French. So what's a Pingouin? Thanks for the correction...or as you would say...er..."correction".
