Katherine the Great

I've blogged in the past about the fabulous Katherine Whitehorn's contribution to the TV documentary "A Widow's Tale". There's a marvellous extract from her autobiography in today's "Times" in which she's describing what it's like to face "the grey mudflats of the future" without her husband. Her writing should be required reading for all those millions of Sunday supplement columnists who came in her wake because there's not an inch of self-pity in her and she's frank enough to say she doesn't know how anyone gets through this without strong drink.

  1. Great piece. She's still hilarious, and very versatile as a writer, unlike most columnists who have about two pieces of schtick, and rely on those to get them through 52 long weeks of columns.
