Gregory Mcdonald Obituaries

Several obituaries appear today for the author of the Fletch novels, including:

The NYT obit describes how Mcdonald used his acerbic humor to avoid being recognized. If a seatmate on an airplane asked him what he did for a living, he would reply that he sold insurance; a perfect way to make sure you’ll be left alone.

A new book by Mcdonald, a collection of articles he wrote when he was a Boston Globe reporter, will be published in November:

Souvenirs of a Blown World: Sketches from the Sixties: Writings About America, 1966-1973
