Naomi was born in London, the child of US emigrés. ‘My own family had no experience of the Blitz,’ she says, ‘but my father served in the US Air Force, and by the mid-50s he and my mother had settled in north London. The Blitz was still a raw and vivid wound. I have clear childhood memories of playing in bomb sites and sifting through the rubble looking for “treasure”. When I look back I wonder if this infantile archaeology pointed to my later fascination with the world evoked by June Spencer’s thought-provoking diaries.’
