Paul Roche

At the risk of turning this blog into a round-up of recent obituaries, I note the passing of the poet and novelist Paul Roche. Perhaps his chief interest in this connection was his long relationship with Duncan Grant, and in particular his appearance in Grant’s controversial 1958 mural in Lincoln cathedral. Obituaries have appeared in the Telegraph and Independent. An account of the murals is given by Edward Mayor, The Duncant Grant Murals in Lincoln cathedral (Lincoln, 2001), including a reminiscence by Roche himself, available direct from the cathedral
