Dear Alan it is very hard for me to write this letter, Alan the youngest member of the crew the only single bloke.The trauma of a single page letter, the walk into the desert, the search for a kind of self destruction: the destruction of the illusion of love in the arms of whom ever woman he paid. And the unexpected love of a young woman in a terraced house in North London whose husband is serving a prison sentence.
