Gritty love story between A and B - Alan and Beatrice, whose street-name from the 'days of wild' is B Monkey - explores love, memory, fear, jealousy and eroticism in quick-snap dialogue and interior monologue. High-octane, street-wise and dirty-talking, with a not so reluctant romanticism that always shows through.

Sir: So often we see a footballer shepherding the ball over the byline and in so doing preventing an opposition player reaching the ball. More often than not a defender is guilty of blatant obstruction, but the referee rarely gives a free-kick against the offender. Why do the officials more often than not turn a blind eye against what is obviously a breach of the rules?

Sir: I missed the earlier correspondence on the offside law. On reading Paul White's comments (Sports Letters, 14 January) I think that the re-marking of pitches would be quite unnecessary. Surely the simplest way to create more penalty- box activity is to treat all direct free-kicks (eg for fouls) in the same way as a throw-in. At present, a foul committed generally leads to defenders pushing up to the halfway line and often results in another free-kick being given when forwards are caught offside. By ruling that no offside shall count if the ball is played directly from a free- kick, the defenders would no longer be free to squeeze play into 10 yards either side of the halfway line. Forwards would be able to get as far forward as they like and the team which had given away the free-kick would stand more chance of being punished.

ANOTHER move towards Mark McCormack's domination of the European concert agency field: IMG Artists (Europe), the London-based classical music wing of the US sports management supremo's empire, has plucked two of the leading singers' managers from rival agencies, writes Andrew Green. Tom Graham of Harrison/Parrott and Diana Mulgan of Lies Askonas Ltd have agreed to form an opera department for IMG. There seems little doubt that most, if not all, of the singers they represent will follow them: the lists include such names as Olaf Baer, Barbara Bonney, Samuel Ramey and Karita Mattila.
