Gregory Rabassa 1922 - 2016

I met him just once and the first thing he did was look me square in the eye and ask me very seriously if I knew what a millihelen was. I'm willing to bet that's how he introduced himself to everyone. Instantaneously charming, funny, and also, needless to say, brilliant. AP obituary here.
