Judith Jones, the editor who discovered Julia Child and advanced a generation of culinary writers that revolutionized cooking and tastes in American homes, and who for a half-century edited John Updike, Anne Tyler, John Hersey and other literary lions, died on Wednesday at her summer home in Walden, Vt. She was 93.

I saw that last week. :cry: Her cookbook, The Pleasures of Cooking for One, is lovely.

I'd like a single plum floating in perfume served in a man's hat.

Simply to be remembered as the person who encouraged the publication of The Diary of Anne Frank in the US is a memorial fit for a heroine, but there is so much else. A truly remarkable person.

:clap: YES!

I never knew until Jones' obituary, though I read the diary when I was a child.
Just think of it: Anne Frank's diary in a slush pile. She found, read and insisted it be published. She certainly had what it took to be a great editor. And she had taste, literally and figuratively; great intelligence and lots of guts/huevos.
