Happy Birthday, Mary! And I love her work. She wrote with such crystalline lyricism. Her books have made me laugh, cry, and rage over people who have felt as real to me as contemporaries.

No one will ever make a tragedy - and that is as well, for one could not bear it - whose grief is that the principals never met. --The Mask of Apollo
