TitlePapers relating to Sue Townsend's monthly column for 'Sainsbury's Magazine'.
DescriptionHolograph drafts, typescripts, facsimiles and letters.

Originally entitled 'Word in the First', the column ran for 10 years and was intended to be a witty reflection on the author's domestic life. In 2001 many of the pieces were published by Michael Jospeh in 'The Public Confessions of a Middle-aged Woman'. The following year the column was renamed 'The Last Word'.
Extent12 files
ArrangementOriginally held in a large suspension file entitled 'Sainsbury's', the articles were bundled together and arranged by year. This order, which has been retained, reflects the date on which each article was written. However, as the articles were written 2 to 3 months in advance of publication, it does not necessarily reflect the dates on which the articles were published. The bundles have since been removed from the suspension file and placed in separate files. Not all the files are complete for each year.
