The New Receptionist was the pseudonym that Elizabeth Smart originally
intended to use, before she changed the title of her novel from St.
Pancras to Grand Central Station.  There is some scholarly argument as
to whether she was weeping because she had just missed a train, or
because she'd been refused admission to the (as it then was) British
Museum Reading Room.

Must one have a university affiliation?  England has a large and
impressive group of independent scholars -- are they all denied use of
the library?  Writers and journalists, too?

The BL has a lot of books about his whereabouts. Don't even bother to
read them. This author is dead. Some say he (or she?) also made the
tyger and the lamb. And one wonders whether he / she who made the New
Receptionist did smile to see St. Pancras Station.
