'Fatal Vision,' an account of a 1970 slaying at Fort Bragg, is one of the most widely read true crime books in history. McGinniss also wrote a behind-the-scenes account of Richard Nixon's '68 campaign.
Joe McGinniss, the adventurous and news-making author and reporter who skewered the marketing of Richard Nixon in "The Selling of the President 1968" and tracked his personal journey from sympathizer to scourge of convicted killer Jeffrey MacDonald in the blockbuster "Fatal Vision," died Monday at a hospital in Worcester, Mass. He was 71.
Surgeon and bioethicist Sherwin Nuland surmounted tragedies and depression to write the critically acclaimed, unflinchingly detailed masterpiece on the untidy process of dying.
Dr. Sherwin B. Nuland was a respected surgeon and bioethicist at Yale University and author of two modestly successful books when he was approached in the early 1990s by a young literary editor. The agent was looking for someone to write a book about what happens to the body and mind during the process of dying, and Nuland had been recommended to him.
Sheila MacRae, actress-singer who was on '60s 'Honeymooners,' dies at 92; Hank Rieger, longtime NBC press representative, dies at 95; Robert Ashley, avant-garde composer, dies at 83.
