R.I. P. Bebe Moore Campbell, 1950-2006


I was saddened to read this earlier today. Ms. Campbell has been one of my favorite authors since I read "Your Blues Ain't Like Mine" some years ago. Her work never let me down and I tried to read everything she wrote, including the excellent "Brothers & Sisters," "What You Owe Me" and most recently, "72 Hour Hold."

For anyone who hasn't read her work, I advise you to go to your local bookstore and pick up one of her books. It is truly a sad day in literature.

She was so young...that's really sad. I never read any of her books because I assumed they were all commercial fiction (read blaxploitation literature), but I've heard that her books were quite the contrary. I'll try and get one of her books in the near future.
