Indeed. I remember when I was but a few years old and my parents used to 
read her books for me. Now she's gone, which is sad. She passed away on the 
28th of January. I hope neither she herself nor her work will ever be 
forgotten, and that it'll remain popular. I had hoped that she'd get the 
Nobel price, but that never hapened...
