There’s no story or observation here. I just need to mark and honour out loud the passing of Ralph Vicinanza, whose unexpected death on Sunday was announced late yesterday. A giant in the publishing industry, and yet the most gentle and intelligent human being you could hope to meet: friend, mentor, an extraordinary person in every way, a man whose passing leaves a terrible hole in the world.

Ralph was my agent for the last fifteen years, but also far more than that: he was a core part of the lives of my wife and I: a supportive, thoughtful, beaming spirit – both loving and loveable – whose warmth and kindness seemed to know no bounds.

I can’t believe he’s gone. He always was, and always will be, Uncle Ralph to us. Our thoughts go out to Terrance, and all the others he leaves behind.

Says Who?

Michael Marshall (Smith): novelist, screenwriter and sitting-place for cats.
