Steve Jobs Con’t

1 Nov

I came across this gorgeous piece, written by Mona Simpson, a professor of mine at Bard College.

Mona Simpson is the author of the novel Anywhere But Here (later made into a film with Natalie Portman and Susan Sarandon), among other things.

Mona Simpson married Richard Appel, son of Nina Appel who was the Dean of Loyola University Chicago School of Law when I was a student there.  Richard Appel wrote for the Simpsons and integrated his wife into the storyline. [Photo Credit: Mona Simpson.com (I’m sure there is a better credit here – The Simpsons? – please feel free to chime in and credit properly).]

Finally, as is relevant here, Mona Simpson is also Steve Jobs’s sister.

    Woah – I didn’t know about all of those connections. I read her eulogy the other day and thought it was beautiful.
