TT: MIA (concluded)

It took long enough and then some, but Elaine Dundy finally made it onto the obituary page of the New York Times last Friday. Kindly note the last paragraph:

The Dud Avocado, reissued last year by The New York Review of Books, remains Ms. Dundy's most popular book, flawed but vital, like its heroine. "The plot is helter-skelter, and the end trails off into vapor," the critic Terry Teachout wrote, "but the narrator's utterly feminine voice redeems all."

Sure enough.
