Barbara Holland

I don't mean to turn this into the all-obituary blog, but I wanted to mention that writer Barbara Holland passed away last week. If you're not familar with her work, check out Endangered Pleasures, Wasn't The Grass Greener? (both essay collections about the way things used to be), and When All The World Was Young, a memoir about growing up in the 40s and 50s.

Oddly, I had actually e-mailed her the day before she passed away.
