leave a comment »

The latest in the death of prolific novelist E. Lynn Harris’ sudden death comes from Essence.com:

Seven unpublished manuscripts written by the late groundbreaking author E. Lynn Harris have been recovered from his computer’s hard drive, according attorney Dermot Givens, who’s the lawyer for Mrs. Etta Williams Harris, the late author’s mother and sole heir. Computer forensic experts were able to locate and open password-protected files that were found on Mr. Harris’s personal laptop. Mama Dearest, the novel Harris was working to release at the time of his death, hit bookshelves in late September 2009.

Thanks to Erica Kennedy for forwarding the link via Twitter.
