In memoriam: Shaun Considine
I just found out today that Shaun Considine, author of Bette and Joan: The Divine Feud (among other books), died on April 14.
Mr. Considine was a supporter of various Joan efforts online, including this one, as well as a warm correspondent of numerous Joan fans. While he had a long and varied career in the arts, we here in Joan World perhaps especially remember him best for his appreciation of and contributions to Joan's legacy.
Here's a 2013 interview with Considine, in which he reminisces about his years documenting show-biz folk, including, of course, Joan.
