What was your pathway to publishing?

My older brother Jamie, who is now a poet, was working for Cambridge University Press. When I finished my degree in economics and philosophy, he introduced me to a publisher he knew, who was looking for staff. I took a job opportunistically in 1977, but then enjoyed it from day one.
