Author Evan S. Connell has passed away. He was 88-years-old.

Born in Kansas City, Connell wrote novels, short stories and poetry, publishing seventeen books in his lifetime. These included Mrs. Bridge (1959) and Mr. Bridge (1969) and Son of the Morning Star (1984).

Here’s more from Counterpoint Press, publisher of his forthcoming collection of prose poems:

His novels  were adapted into the critically acclaimed 1990 Merchant-Ivory film Mr. and Mrs. Bridge starring Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward … Connell was awarded the Robert Kirsch Award (a Los Angeles Times Book Prize) for “a living author with a substantial connection to the American West, whose contribution to American letters deserves special recognition.
