Jan Mark

We heard of the sudden and completely unexpected news of the death of Jan Mark on Monday 16 January. She died in her sleep on Sunday night. It is a terrific shock to all who knew her and to all who admired her work. She was a tireless supporter of Carousel and her reviews were models of the informative, pithy and always with her distinctive wit. There will be a short mention of her work with Carousel in the February edition and a longer piece in the summer magazine. She will be very much missed.
