E.L. Doctorow, an author of award-winning novels, has died at 84.
Leonard Peltier and the International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee wish to extend our condolences to Mr. Doctorow’s family and friends.
The author of a dozen novels, three volumes of short fiction and a stage drama, as well as essays and commentary on literature and politics, Mr. Doctorow was widely lauded for the originality, versatility and audacity of his imagination. Peltier supporters will perhaps remember that together with Peter Matthiessen, Kurt Vonnegut Jr., and William and Rose Styron, Mr. Doctorow published “United States v. Leonard Peltier” in the New York Review of Books, 20 July 2000. See http://www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/2000/jul/20/united-states-v-leonard-peltier/.
