Katherine Dunn, R. I. P.

Willamette Week: Katherine Dunn, whose best-selling novel Geek Love was a National Book Award finalist in 1989 and became a cult classic, died at age 70 in her Portland home on May 11.  

Hat tip to Todd Mason.

GEEK LOVE is one of those books always being touted on "must read" lists, but it is something that just didn't appeal to me at all.

It seems impossible to me that she was 70 and so unfair that she has died.
