Memento of Byron's most innocent love to be sold: A locket of hair the poet sent to his childhood sweetheart was a romantic token of a unique friendship. Dalya Alberge reports
Saturday 17 July 1993
IF BYRON had lived today, Sotheby's might be auctioning a half-garbled fax to his love; in fact, it will be selling a lock of the great English Romantic poet's chestnut hair, gently curled into a double-sided locket.

BOOK REVIEW / Truth and dare in a town named Verity: 'Turtle Moon' - Alice Hoffman: Macmillan, 14.99
Sunday 02 August 1992
Alice Hoffman's account of small-town life in Florida opens with so many references to junk American culture that the reader might assume that this is another fashionably deadpan contemporary novel, about people who lead aimless lives in a place where nothing much ever happens.
VIDEO ROUND-UP / By the light of the tube: John Lyttle reviews new releases including Frankie & Johnny, Def By Temptation and Under Suspicion
Friday 03 July 1992
FRANKIE & JOHNNY (CIC 15 113 mins). For sour sentimentalists. Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer, both spectacularly miscast, work as a short-order cook and waitress, each leery of emotional entanglement. After many misunderstandings and snappy one-liners and hesitations, the couple uneasily become lovers, just like the characters in the hoary old song. This is condescending Hollywood fakery with wafer-thin pretensions to realism, yet the essential artifice is what makes it, on some silly level, satisfying. You can giggle at the cliches and still be captivated by the prefabricated sitcom feelings. The story also works better on the small screen. Available 17 July.
