April Ashley holds her "ghost" Douglas Thompson solely responsible for the plagiarism of Duncan Fallowell's 1982 book on her, April Ashley's Odyssey. In her latest message to me she writes:
"I just cannot believe the stupidity of Douglas Thompson. I had pleaded with him hundreds of times to forward me a manuscript so that I could check it to make sure it did not sound like "The Odyssey" to no avail. I would not like his life at the moment as he does have a formidible wife Lesley, so I think he will be banished to the cottage."
