Julia Reed RIP

Stunning news yesterday that Julia Reed had passed away after a long battle with cancer. A sheer talent, a force of nature, an entertainer, writer who rested almost always on her Southern roots. Her many books on entertaining, the South are worth adding to your library if you don't have them.  Her obituary is here.  If you loved her writing, her style, her persona, please read this. It is certainly worth it.  She lived well and even owned a small bookstore in Mississippi.  The world will have one less talented writer in it, one less chronicler of the South.  Rest well my friend. You only live once but if you do it right then once is enough.
