Dear Howard
By David Batterham, with foreword by Barry Humphries

This hugely enjoyable collection of letters, written by antiquarian bookseller David Batterham to the painter Howard Hodgkin, introduce us to a richly bohemian world that we might otherwise never encounter.  He journeys from Venice to New York, from Copenhagen to Paris and encounters an assortment of proud book-dealing families, wheelers and dealers, old actors and mad professors.
David Batterham’s wine-stained reports of a wandering life are never censorious, always observant and one can only imagine Howard Hodgkin’s delight on reading them.
