Her book about photography "Diana & Nikon" is interesting but she wrote a lot a lot of crap on Garry Winogrand, who - unlike Malcolm - will remain in people's memory.
Therefore it's not truly a "RIP" neither a "good riddance witch"! Something in the middle?

True that. Bye! cool smiley

What? Shirley, she deserves to rest in peace.

Her In the Freud Archives is great prose, a testimony to a sense of acute observation, and great humour. (And, through Peter Swales, has "some kinda Stones connection")

But I agree that her comments on other people were often exaggerated and left the reader with a bitter taste in his or her mouth.
