Many of us will have heard or read that Di Gribble, of the now-defunct McPhee-Gribble publishing house died several weeks ago. I read and reviewed Hilary McPhee’s book Other People’s Words a few months back here and when I heard the news, I wondered what had happened after McPhee’s book had been published. How did Di Gribble react? I wondered. How did they feel about each other’s career in the wake of McPhee-Gribble’s demise?
Hilary McPhee answered many of my questions in a tribute that she wrote for The Drum recently. I urge you to read it here.
