Edith Macefield’s old home to go up for sale

Today the New York Times posted a story about Edith Macefield and her standoff with developers. A little after the fact, but it includes two new tidbits of information. Barry Martin, the construction chief who took care of Edith in her final days and was willed her house, says he plans to sell it to help pay for his daughters’ college education. “I am going to benefit,” Martin told the NY Times reporter, tears in his eyes. “And that’s the dilemma.”

No word on when the house will go on the market. And the second tidbit of information: Edith had written a short novel about post-World War I Europe, and it was published in 1994 under the pen name Domilini.
