Richard Hollis

The list of three books appear under his own name, but under the umbrella of Five Leaves Publishers. Two are connected with Ted Hughes and with a single London house. The memoir of Ted Hughes is written by the tenant of the flat where Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath stayed. Richard Hollis lived in the flat on the floor above, succeeding as tenant Jim Downer, the begetter of the recently published children’s book Timmy the Tug for which Ted Hughes wrote the words. Susan Alliston, the author of the second book, for which Ted Hughes wrote an introduction, at a later date, also lived in the house. The third book, a memoir of his experiences in the Holocaust is by Romek Marber, designer responsible for the basic style across most of the Penguin covers in the early 1960s and in the following twenty years.
