Russell Hoban

February 4, 1925 - December 13, 2011

An author who influenced me immensely.

He'll be missed.

I'm very sad to hear this. He was such a great writer and I'm very grateful to you for introducing me to his work.

he had been in hospital recently with heart surgery, and had clearly had various health issues for a while. so it was something i had been fearing for a while. but still came as a shock when i heard yesterday afternoon.

just logged into my yahoo account to find 3 pages of email from the yahoo group for his readers. i cried. this is one of those passings which has deeply affected me.

i'm always glad to share joy, i'll of course need to take some time to re-read and appreciate his words again.
