In Memoriam – E. Lynn Harris

Sad news on the literary/entertainment front. Popular Author E. Lynn Harris has died while on a West Coast tour of his latest book “Basketball Jones”. He was 54.

I have all his books. I loved his writing style and him addressing LGBT issues in his book in a manner that was not derogatory! I remember sneeking to get his first book “Invisible Life” from a Black Expo in the 90’s. LOL

“Invisible Life”, “Just As I Am”, and “Basketball Jones” are my 3 favorite books from him.

Wow. Totally sudden and unexpected.

Rest in Peace E. Lynn Harris

  1. I'm sad to hear that he passes away. I had the fortune of speaking to him a few times on the phone and he sounded like a delightful individual. I've red most of his books and I've always wanted to see them come to life on the big screen. He will be missed.
