End of an Era…a faithful Joan Aiken fan retires

Charles & Joan

Charles Schlessiger – Joan Aiken’s agent of 50 years retires, at the age of 81!

Here seen with his small stepson Chris, visiting Joan at Petworth in the 1970’s.

And that’s Joan in the yellow jeans – Charles was quite a bit taller!

Charles was the literary agent and advisor to four generations of the Aiken family.

  1. It’s both happy and sad when someone like Charles retires, but the trick is to keep remembering all the good things that have transpired during their time, and it sounds as if there have been quite a few!
