Reading now: 996

(Image via St. Martin's Griffin) I was sorry to read of the death of Lars Eighner, the gay writer who documented his homelessness in Travels with Lizbeth (1993).

He died December 23 at 73, and his death went unreported until now due to his reclusive lifestyle. Travels with Lizbeth was a critically acclaimed memoir for St.

Martin's Press, where I worked, and which became my publisher, too. Lars very graciously blurbed my debut novel Boy Culture, not something a newly celebrated writer would necessarily want to do for a fellow newcomer.
