Knew How to Seize the Day

Just across the way from Karl Marx’s resting place in Highgate Cemetery, I came across one of the most interesting stones. This is where Publisher Simon Gavron was buried. His wife, Martha Pichey,  is a writer. Simon, who was the son of a millionaire, died four year ago at the age of 46, in Belsize Park Gardens after a fit due to natural causes.
