I was listing to NPR today and learned of David's death. I am sorry and offer condolences. I loved talking with David at the Lion's Head. I love it that he escorted me to the White Horse Tavern and told me of his last night with Dylan Thomas there. David was brilliant and funny.

David, in the 1950's I remember you asked me (in the West End Bar, where you sat puzzling, a Bible in your lap, surrounded by your admirers), "Jane, you don't happen to know where Moses was when the lights went out?" "Yes, of course, I know." You were astonished. How could I possibly know? It's a Dublin, Catholic school kids' riddle--not an erudite biblical reference. It corresponds to Joyce's other riddle--"Who was MacIntosh?"

Your brilliance dazzled me, and still does. I'm immensely grateful for the hours I spent listening to you, and they informed my life.

Like you, I plan that my ashes will blow in the wind. But that is not all of you that will survive. The memory of your laughter, your incomparable wit, your searching intelligence, your beautiful energy and creativity will live among those of us who knew you. I am still laughing at so many of your bons mots. Your laughter lives--beautifully.

To the Family and Friends of David Markson,

So very sorry for this great loss may you find a maeasure of peace from the following thought God is healing the broken hearted ones, and is binding up their painful spots.

You can feel that Death can leave a heartache that nothing can heal, just know that Love can leave a memory that no one can steal.

I am very sad to hear that my 'ol English prof from LIU (Long Island University, Brooklyn campus) has died. I have such fond memories of his class (we had a weekly assignment to always read the Sunday TIMES!), that I found his phone number online a few years ago and called him, and he actually answered the phone! We had a lovely conversation; he said he remembered me, and he subsequently sent me postcards about his latest books being published. I went to The Strand to see his display, and bought myself another copy of "The Ballad of Dingus McGee" which I had lent to a friend who never returned it. I had hoped to see him again one day to get his autograph. My condolences to his family; please let me know when/if there will be a public memorial for Mr. Markson. Thank you.
