He will be sorely missed! May he rest in peace.

Further obituaries today; The Gaurdian includes an appreciation from fellow critic Noël Goodwin who worked with Barnes on that much lamented publication Dance and Dancers.

The Independent

I had to smile at this though:

Quote:
"I'm your typical working-class over-achiever," he said.


Obituaries frequently catch people out and if Mr Barnes went to fee paying Emanuel before going on to Oxford then he sure as hell wasn't working class.

As reported by one of the obits, he went there on scholarship.

For an alternate take on Barnes, read William Goldman's The Season (possibly the best book ever written about the American theatre). Goldman -- also author of Marathon Man and The Princess Bride, was, to put it lightly, not at all one of Mr. Barnes' fans.

It may be out of print, but I often see it in used book stores.
