Laura Del Rivo(1934-), Writer
Sitter in 5 portraits
The first novel by Del Rivo, The Furnished Room (1961) set in bohemian London, was successfully adapted in 1963 into the film West 11. Del Rivo published some of her early work in Intimate Review, an underground paper edited by the poet John Rety, by whom she later had a son. The paper circulated among the literary crowd of the Soho coffee houses and attracted contributions from many contemporary writers such as Doris Lessing, Bill Hopkins and Bernard Kops.
