R.I.P. E. Lynn Harris

E. Lynn Harris ursued a career as a successful, closeted IMB executive, whilst writing his stories about the lives and loves of gay black men. His first published novel The Invisible Life cast light on the "down low" lifestyle. The Invisible Life was briefly self-published before being picked up by Martha Levin at Doubleday. Another ten novels followed with the same publisher, including many best sellers. His work included elements of romance but crossed over many genres and was particularly popular with female readers. E. Lynn Harris died yesterday at the age of 54 after a short illness.
