Susan's Book Talk: Sad News

The world of contemporary fiction is mourning the loss of Bebe Moore Campbell, a fantastic writer and, like me, an alum of the University of Pittsburgh (although I don't think she was a writing major).

If you've never read any of Campbell's works, this would be a good time to pick some of them up. She even wrote a children's book, about mental illness. She was an important writer, with an eye for detail and an ear for dialogue, and her talent will be missed.

Condolences to her family and us fans around the world.

It's always sad to hear about the loss of someone.
 
Especially someone who was highly regarded in her field, too.
 
So sad that your field has lost someone so great.
 
Yeah, and not even I'm shameless enough to say that now there's room for more great people (like me). While there is, you don't want that room to be made by losing someone so good.

Have you guys ever read any Campbell?
 
That is sad. She didn't look that old either. :(
 
She wasn't.

Evil cancer motherfucker. *grumble*
