Norval Morris, an author whose Brothel Boy stories
have played an important part in my Law, Literature and Medicine
course for many years, has died at the age of 80. The best obituary on him so far was in The New York Times
, but the difficulty of finding a stable link to that article has sent me to The Seattle Times
, which ran the Times' obit
in full. Morris was an extraordinarily gifted writer whose explorations of criminal responsibility and justice were original and entertaining.
