This month I've struck up a correspondence with our new Head of Architecture, Design & Fashion Department in London, Vicky Richardson - until recently Editor of Blueprint. She's coming to Shanghai for the Expo next week. It will be an emotional trip as her mother was born there. Oh really, I tell her, I was there recently and amongst other things tracked down J G Ballard's childhood home (see 13 April post). That's funny, she replies, Ballard was my uncle.
