s'long larry

news of the death of one of my favorite writers (larry brown, dead of a heart attack at 53) caught my eye yesterday as it scrawled across the bottom of the cnn screen. for years i've looked forward to the release of every new larry brown book (although i never enjoyed a new offering more than i did joe). larry's characters lived "dark, brutal lives, often overtaken by drinking and sex and ruinous relationships," broken and tangible characters that i felt like i knew. oxford misses his voice already.
