Stanhope Gardens was a cosy set-up for all of us during JAPAN’s days but author John Connolly was a bit misguided with his comments. Aside from the fact that I never dated Ms. Fujii, ‘Overlooking flats’ is also a gross exaggeration. Even with industrial strength binoculars and a few strategically placed mirrors in winter when the trees were bare wouldn’t have made it remotely plausible, but then you can’t allow the truth to get in the way of a good yarn. For the record, I was spending a lot of time at Mr. Karn’s place at that time as I also lived within binocular distance and he was only too pleased Ms. Fujii was crashing out with Sylvian (to quote Bowie). There were darker forces at play.
