The AP is reporting that writer E. Lynn Harris passed away today. According to his publicist Laura Gilmore, he died at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills.

He was 54.

I was never really a fan but can’t deny his huge cultural impact. He was everywhere in the 90s – on the bus/subway, campuses, hair salons, . . . He proved those of us who assumed his career would be super-short wrong. His audience kept growing. He kept at it and ended up with a very lucrative body of work. I just looked over this body of work and didn’t realized how much he had managed to produce very consistently. He will be missed.
