A Story-teller's Tale
This month Bookmark features two extremes of American story-telling.
Peter Taylor is little known in this country but in America many consider him their greatest short-story writer. Next month he publishes a fine novel,
A Summons to Memphis. Ian Hamilton talks to
Peter Taylor at his home in Charlottesville, Virginia, about the foibles of his
Southern family and the phases of his own life which have shaped his calm, civilised, engaging voice. Swimming to Cambodia
Spalding Gray is not a writer. He tells his stories and those witty stories are his life.
Bookmark followed this zany tale-teller during a recent tour of Britain, as he absorbed the experiences and the encounters which become his living fiction.
In Manchester and London he performs the taut monologues which are his recorded life story so far.

Alpha One is the call-sign of the central fire station in Hull, one of the busiest in the country. It deals with 200 emergency calls a month and with the largest variety of incidents in Britain.
The crew of fire-engine Alpha One/One turn out day and night to answer calls for help. A lorry is ablaze in a garage ... women are trapped in a lift ... a budgie has to be rescued from a chip pan fire ... 250 tons of fish oil are spilled in the street ... and Alpha One/One is on its way. The firemen comfort the injured at road accidents, treat the casualties at house fires, investigate a possible arson. It's all part of the danger and drama facing the men at this hectic northern fire station.
