Louis Auchincloss

The only thing I can add to the obituary for Louis Auchincloss (AW-kin-kloss) is that it was once reported that a woman seated next to him at a dinner party asked him if he had read such-and-such book, an apparent bestseller.

He replied that if he had, he wouldn’t tell anyone.

It was not reported what title she asked him about, but she's definitely destined for permanent purgatory if it was Jacqueline Susann's Valley of the Dolls.
