Dame Beryl Bainbridge, author of The Bottle Factory Opening and An Awfully Big Adventure, died today at 75. This is a passing of a brilliant figure in the canon of English novel-writing.


(As an aside, I noticed today that not a single Bainbridge novel is available in the US Kindle store. :( There's only one, I think, even in the UK Kindle store. Hopefully her books will continue to be readily available for future generations to read. I clicked on a couple of "I would like to read this on Kindle" links, myself. :) )
