Sir: I enjoyed Enoch Powell's review of my new book (12 March) but I was mystified by your decision to accompany the review by a portrait of the present Taoiseach. I can assure you that `Conor Cruise O'Brien' is not a pseudonym for C. J. Haughey. And I believe Mr Haughey will be happy to confirm this.
