Sue Townsend RIP

Sue Townsend, 2 April 1946 – 10 April 2014

Very sad to read of the death of Sue Townsend, creator of Adrian Mole.  There is a wonderful obituary written at The Guardian, here.

Many of us entered adulthood to be entertained for years by Sue’s superb creation, Adrian Mole.  Her work lives on; may she rest in peace.

        Right. On the other hand, she just did not want her life ‘in the open’. Many readers will pause and commemorate her today.

    I didn’t know about Susan Townsend, living in the States. That is a loss for me. However, having read the excellent obituary, and liking this author immediately as I read it, I will seek out her books.
