Driving Len Deighton

I've just managed to get hold of a Sunday Times magazine from April 14 1963 featuring an article by Len Deighton on Supercar Motoring (find the article and the links to it on my Deighton Dossier main website).

Flushed with the critical and financial success of The Ipcress File, Len Deighton was someone who clearly liked to be in the cutting edge of the latest technological developments. In 1963, that meant short-wave in-car radio phones and in-car phonographs (record players!). A fascinating insight into how far we've come, technology-wise, in the last forty years. The uses of new technology in changing the world of work is something which features in a number of his stories.
