Motsyn-Lineke: So finally after such a long wait what you got to tell us, Hackers ?
Jean Hackman: (pause) . . Such a lot to say really . .. I've needed all this time to get my
head together actually . . (pause) ... . I was lucky enough to be there, y'know?
at Koo's beheading, I mean .. I was one of a select few, privileged guests
. .. They'd sent out a special invite to "Abject Failures" I was there ..
well, y'know, after the abject failure of my latest work KnitOnePurl & Dean
- where only one person has bought the book .. (breaks off) . ..
Motsyn-Lineke: (curious) So who was the . . ? (tails off)
Jean Hackman: (dismissive) Purl & Dean ! . ... (pause) . . . Y'know I told Koo that you

Look!, Koo I said This aint the 70's ! (after all) , is it ? . . (long pause) ..

Jean Hackman: (quickly dismissive) Yes
