Happy Hundred Mary McCarthy


 

June 21st, 2012, your 100th Birthday Mary McCarthy, and no picture of you is quite complete without a cigarette. So, ignoring health warnings and good taste, wherever you are, whatever you're doing, whoever you're beguiling, charming or dealing with - be it el diablo, Mephistopheles or Lillian herself - we hope you're enjoying a smoke: sin and be damned - it's what you really would have wanted.
