E. Lynn Harris, R.I.P.

By admin Published: July 24, 2009

The Associated Press is reporting that the author has died. If you are unaware of his enormous body of work, his Web site is here.

I interviewed Harris by telephone back in May before he gave a talk and reading at the Akron-Summit County library. It was a briskly business-like interview, but a good one. He spoke vigorously and openly, and was looking ahead as well as enjoying his current place in literature. It was one of those interviews where I thought it would be interesting to talk to him much more at another time. Which now, alas, there won't be.

Ohio.com has posted my story from May. You can find it here. A New York Times look at his work, to be expanded later, is here.
