About meI index books professionally, as well as reading them constantly in my leisure time, and sometimes writing and publishing them. I have compiled detailed indexes to all the fiction of A. S. Byatt, and simpler cumulative indexes to the Starbridge novels and St Benet's novels by Susan Howatch, The Lampitt Papers sequence by A. N. Wilson, eight novels by J. L. Carr, and to all the novels of Molly Keane, Alison Lurie, Iris Murdoch, Barbara Pym and Angela Thirkell.
About my libraryMy books come from many sources: inherited from various relatives, purchased at university and retained, sent to me for indexing (some of these published copies given to me, others sets of proofs retained), bought through the years (many at library sales or in second-hand bookshops or charity shops).
