On the Passing of Bertrice Small

Posted by Ethan Ellenberg on February 25, 2015


BERTRICE SMALL                              December 9, 1937-February 24, 2015


It’s with great sadness that I acknowledge on our website the passing of Bertrice Small, a great colleague and a true friend.  We enjoyed a long, fruitful relationship based on mutual respect and candor.  She was a friend and a mentor to me as an agent and I treasure both the work we did together and the companionship we shared discussing the business and our personal lives.  Her talent and accomplishments were vast, not only in the number of her books she wrote, but in their quality and their fresh and groundbreaking content.

She was a unique and special woman, full of life and intelligence and wit and she will be missed.  May she be remembered for a blessing.
