Over the long weekend, several posts related to literary deaths popped up in our RSS feeder.

One was an update on a death that occurred last year: that of novelist Martin Amis.

The Guardian reports that a memorial for the author of Money and London Fields will take place June 10.

Amis died May 19, 2023, at age seventy-three.

Two other posts were obituaries for writers who died more recently.

Caleb Carr, best known for his dark thriller The Alienist, died May 23 at age sixty-eight; Adele Faber, famous for How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk, died April 24 at age ninety-six.

And finally, The Paris Review literally took a look inside the late writer Alice Munro's notebooks, with the author of an in-progress biographer of her analyzing her creative process through these manuscripts.

Munro died May 14 at age ninety-two.
