My Father

After a long battle with cancer, my father, Kurt Richards (formerly Kurt Rikowski) died on 15th February.

I wrote ‘A Tribute to Kurt Richards’ a few days after he died, which I shall put on The Flow of Ideas web site in due course.

MICHELE ROBERTS: NOVELIST AND RADICAL FEMINIST

By Ruth Rikowski

Ruth Rikowski has written an article on Michele Roberts: Novelist and Radical Feminist which can now be viewed at The Flow of Ideas web site (the Rikowski family web site). In this article, Ruth indicates how she first experienced Michele Roberts and her writings at the CILIP Members’ Day, and goes on to draw parallels between Roberts’ life, social and political views and her own. For both Michele Roberts and Ruth Rikowski, the love of writing shines through and throughout their lives.
