Ira Levin, RIP

I guess I'm out of the literary loop, because I only now learned, thanks to Sunni, that Ira Levin died this past Monday at the age of 78. Most people know Levin for his novels Rosemary's Baby and The Stepford Wives. But for my money, his best books were A Kiss Before Dying (1953), his very first, and the extraordinary libertarian classic This Perfect Day (1970), which is unfortunately hard to find but very much worth seeking out.
