The New York Times is reporting that noted reporter and author Joe McGinniss has passed away at 71. McGinniss was the author of The Selling of the President and Fatal Vision.
Personally, I was originally introduced to McGinniss’ work because of the role he played in jumpstarting the career of Bret Easton Ellis.
Decades later, I also immensely enjoyed The Deliveryman by McGinniss’ son Joe Jr.
Sad loss. Our Slushpile thoughts go out to the family.
