Death of a storyteller
Ira Levin, who died this week at the age of 78, was a great teller of tales that got under the contemporary skin. "Rosemary's Baby". "The Boys From Brazil" and "The Stepford Wives" were all made into big hit films. My favourite is his first book, "A Kiss Before Dying", which came out in 1954. It's only a slim volume. You could read it this weekend. You might not sleep though.
