mavis gallant lies in a marked grave.
when i was last in Paris (2015) mavis was (temporarily) in an unmarked grave, tucked inside the crypt of a friend’s family, and this troubled me greatly.i don’t know why? today i emailed her agent and asked about her burial status and he informed me that she rests quietly in her own space. this makes me unbelievably happy.
work is hard, life is hard.
i’ll lay a wreath for Mavis when i’m next in Paris.
