Charles Portis RIP

There seem to have been too many deaths lately. The latest to leave us is Charles Portis, 86, author of at least two classics – the western True Grit and the comedy Masters of Atlantis, for my money one of the funniest novels of the 20th century.  He published relatively little – but all of it worth looking out – and shunned publicity, preferring to live a quiet life in Litte Rock, Arkansas. His name will surely live on – and meanwhile the Coen brothers should surely make a film of Masters of Atlantis...

  1. Roy Blount said that Norwood was both his favorite novel by Portis and his favorite novel, and the first half took the most deciding. I believe that somebody did make a movie of Norwood, but I've never seen it.
