Hazel Rowley (1952-2011)

The very gifted writer Hazel Rowley died in New York a few days ago. She is widely known for her biographies of Christina Stead and Richard Wright, and more recently completed a book on Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. I met her only once, but she impressed me as someone who was intensely and completely happy. A death notice in The Australian newspaper is linked here:

Nick reports that a memorial service for Hazel Rowley will be held in New York at the Church of the Transfiguration, 1 E. 29th St. (bet. Madison and Fifth Aves.), on March 12 at 2:00.
