In appreciation: Ann Arensberg

Many of us called her Annie. Partly because she was so accessible:  friendly, funny, at times coquettish, other times schoolgirlish.  I adored flirting with her.  But underneath the Annie was a person of remarkable sophistication evident in her writing. Her curiosity about everything and everybody was boundless.

In appreciation: Ann Arensberg

The first thing to be said about Ann Arensberg straight away was that she was crush material. She had a kind of classic 20th-century beauty about her … the girl next door — but with a dazzling quality of fun and spirit. She was full of girlishness with a kind of prankster spirit about her. She was not a receded beauty.
