Death of Mal Peet, writer

Such sad news with the announcement of the death last Monday of Mal Peet, writer. His agent Peter Cox said His best and most exciting years were still ahead: his premature death is utterly tragic.
He had the gift, once you were engaged in a conversation, of absolutely shutting out the rest of the world and concentrating entirely on what he was saying to you. I met him at a particularly happy lunch party at the home of John and Ruth McIntyre here in Wellington a couple of years ago and it is a memory to treasure.
Explore the tributes on the net – they make sad but inspiring reading.
