An aside here: A book reviewer/critic from a large publication was trying to contact Margaret to arrange an interview. After many failed attempts he was finally able to contact her and said by way of conversation that she was a difficult person to reach. Her reply was something like - "I was busy, there was a window that needed to be stared out of."
