Fog on the Tyne

Last week we used a photograph of Front Street, Tynemouth to illustrate an article about the success of the council in a the deprived area of South Tyneside ("One of the best, against the odds ...). Tynemouth is one of the more affluent parts of North Tyneside. In the same article Cradley Heath was described as being under South Tyneside Council. It is in the West Midlands, administered by Sandwell.

The wrong tree

The "boab tree" in the Kimberley pictured on the front page of the Travel section (18 April) was a baobab tree.

Imaginary friends

The picture caption for the article "Nato's unhappy 50th birthday" (18 April) refers to the "postwar partnership of Roosevelt and Churchill". There was no such partnership. Roosevelt died before the end of the war and Churchill was replaced as prime minister before Japan surrendered.

What's in a name?

The 17th-century English poet was Sir William D'avenant (1606-68), not "Sir John Davenant", as stated in John Morrish's feature about poets laureate ("Much rhyme, little reason", 18 April).

Mozart mistake

In his review of John Joliffe's book on Glyndebourne (Books, Culture, 18 April), Stephen Fay refers to Deborah Warner's 1994 production of The Marriage of Figaro. It was Don Giovanni.

Writer's block

Contrary to the impression readers may have gained from the article last week ("Last exit to welfare", Culture, 18 April), Hubert Selby Jr has been published in the English-speaking world by Marion Boyars since she and John Calder first published Last Exit to Brooklyn in 1966. Since then Marion Boyars Publishers has published Requiem for a Dream (1976 and last reissued 1996), The Demon (first in 1989 and last reissued 1998), Song of The Silent Snow (1989), and The Room (1972 and last reissued 1998). Last year Marion Boyars published The Willow Tree, Selby's first book for 10 years.
