Bye, Bye E Lynn Harris [June 20, 1955-July 23, 2009] ndlela July 24, 2009 General 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.
