Rest well, Diana
Shocked and saddened to hear of the death of Diana Wynne Jones this morning. Her lighthearted, engaging, funny, moving, magical books are an incredible gift to the world. I can see 17 of them on my shelves from where I sit. They’ve been a comfort and a light in hard times. You could always rely on Diana to bring joy and to cheer you up. Just knowing there was someone so wonderful in the world who could create such magic, and the seemingly endless surprise of her continued work. Now there won’t be any more, and we are poorer for it, but she has left such wonderful gifts behind.
My heart goes out to her friends and family. She was a deeply wonderful woman.
Just some of my favourites:
