Happy birthday, Lady Antonia Fraser.
Lady Antonia Fraser, writer of historical nonfiction (The Gunpowder Plot, Mary Queen of Scots, The Warrior Queens, etc.) as well as the creator of reporter-sleuth Jemima Shore, was born today in London in 1932. Jemima debuted in Quiet as a Nun (1977), followed by several more books and a TV series. Alas, we have not seen Jemima since Tartan Tragedy (2006).
