I’m so extremely sad to have just learned of the passing of Tony Horwitz. Celebrity deaths don’t usually affect me, but this one is different. He’s not just my favorite author; he’s my hero and role model; someone I aspire to be like and whose work I dream of emulating. I’ve read most of his books and plan to read the rest of them soon, but to know that that’s it- that there will be no more amazing insightful tales and history lessons from this man, well… it’s truly saddening.Thank you so much, Mr. Horwitz, for sharing your work with the world, and for being an inspiration. Vieglas smiltis.
