London, 1966

It was Celia who introduced Marcia to Mickey. On a pea-souper of a foggy London evening, at a workmate’s invitation, Celia walked to a party just around the corner from her flat. It was one of those Kensington affairs with darkened rooms that led off into bedrooms and niches, where couples who couldn’t bear to make eye contact by day, here would mouth each other in wet kisses, grope and wrestle, any notions of class, in every sense, thrown to the winds.

Trio, Geraldine Wooller
