Reynolds Price Has Died

Novelist and Duke University professor Reynolds Price has passed away. He was 77-years-old. Above, we’ve embedded a Charlie Rose interview with the author.

Classics Rock! posted this tribute to the author: “He was known as a prolific writer who produced nonfiction, poetry, plays, essays, and fiction, including the novel Kate Vaiden, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1986. His most recent book was his third memoir, Ardent Spirits: Leaving Home, Coming Back, published in 2009. Less well known is Price’s work as a lyricist: He collaborated on two songs with his friend and fellow North Carolinian James Taylor.”

The site also linked to a number of Taylor songs written by the late novelist, including “New Hymn” and  “Copperline.”
