gilbert sorrentino (1929-2006)

Such a short time ago, I remarked on the growing ubiquity of novelist Gilbert Sorrentino, only to find he died weeks later at the end of May. There have been several tributes to the author since then that illuminate the author's life and deserve linking.

The Los Angeles Times: "Gilbert Sorrentino, 77; Avant-Garde Novelist, Professor"
n+1: "Uncorrupted: On Gilbert Sorrentino"
ReadySteadyBook: "Gilbert Sorrentino"
The Guardian: "Gilbert Sorrentino"
The Elegant Variation: "Gilbert Sorrentino Dead"
The Washington Post: "Experimental Writer Gilbert Sorrentino"

I can only imagine more will follow.
