Shattered to hear news of the death of Clair Boylan on the radio this morning. I met her in the days before the publication of her first novel while she was still best known as a magazine journalist. I liked her immensely and while we never became close friends, I followed her career with interest from that point on. Unbelievable to think she's dead at 58. The country has lost a fine writer.
