Margaret Wise Brown

The author of the children’s book Goodnight Moon was apparently quite a character — unmarried, with many lovers, fond of hunting rabbits but not particularly fond of children. Here’s a glimpse:

“Margaret Wise Brown died tragically early at 42, though it should be noted that she died playfully. She was in France, hospitalized for appendicitis…and after the routine operation she seemed to be recovering uneventfully. One morning she kicked her leg can-can style to show a nurse how well she was, and an embolism killed her instantly.”
