From Ms Frances Coady

Sir: I am writing in response to Gilbert Adair's review of Jeanette Winterson's Art Objects (3 June).

The answer to Mr Adair's question "doesn't she know what 'nemesis' means?" is - yes, Jeanette Winterson is fully aware of the meaning of the word "nemesis" and we already had in production an erratum slip rectifying this error. She wrote "mimesis" and the mistake is entirely ours.

Yours sincerely,
