The long and short of being a 6ft teen | Young people


Is it really better to be tall, asks Coco Khan (We ask an expert, 6 January). As a 15-year-old six-footer in the 1950s, I can assure you that the answer is no. Being cast as Little John in a school pageant didn’t help my self-esteem. And with size 10 feet, neither did being shod courtesy of army surplus stores.

Re your interview with Miriam Margolyes (‘People have this idea that I’m a walking cesspit. I think it’s quite unfair’, 5 January), not so long ago I shared a flat with her in New York for a few months. We hadn’t met before. I was teaching, she was acting. I never was happier. She was fascinating, funny, wise, kind and generous. And she didn’t pay me to write this. She’d be mortified.

Going to the loo when you are wearing a jumpsuit is difficult, and so is using an aeroplane toilet (Landing gear revamp: jumpsuits and hijabs feature in British Airways restyle, 6 January). Combining the two is surely impossible?

The best time to read brief letters is between 5pm and 7pm (Letters, 5 January). If your letter is going to be published in the paper the next day, it will appear online during this time, which enhances the evening something amazing.
