Pg. 135 of David Markson’s copy of A Ringing Glass: The Life of Rainer Maria Rilke by Donald Prater:
     On which David Markson put a check next to a mention of Gwendolen John:     “Augustus John’s sister Gwen, who had often posed for Rodin.”
—
     The same Gwen about whom Markson says…
     “Fleeing the start of World War II, Gwen John collapsed and died on a street in Dieppe.”     From pg. 173 of Reader’s Block.
