Thank you to Justine Mann and Bridget Gillies who have been tireless in supporting the exhibition project from its beginnings through all of the challenges involved in bringing it to life online. To UEA, and all the publishers who kindly gave permissions to reproduce printed materials in the exhibition. To my father Victor Sage, for his generosity in providing his insights about Lorna’s life as a student, and for offering Dad levels of encouragement. To Val Striker, whose support at UEA was invaluable to Lorna. To Faith Evans, Lorna’s literary agent, for being so pivotal to Bad Blood’s publishing story, and for always being on hand to provide her wisdom and experience. To Nicholas Pearson and Fourth Estate for their continuing support of Lorna’s work, and by extension, of me. To Gemma Elnaugh and Jake Montanarini for their generosity and technical help. To my inspirational daughter, Lorna’s granddaughter, Olivia, for her spirit, intelligence and magic. To Giancarlo, per incoraggiamento perpetuo. STS, December 2021
