I was saddened to read that AA Gill died. I first stumbled across his beautiful and sarcastic writing at a used bookstore in Prague, and have read much of his oeuvre including To America With Love. Not sure how popular he is on the SDMB but I think he had a column in UK Vanity Fair and The Times.
Had it happened a year later Happy Lendervender would have scored a point for 2017.
I’ll miss you.
