Here are the literary deaths that either occurred recently or popped into the news recently:

Labor activist Jane F. McAlevey, who also published several nonfiction books and many journalistic pieces, died Sunday at the age of fifty-nine.

Her books included the bestsellers No Shortcuts: Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age and Rules to Win By: Power and Participation in Union Negotiations.

Poet Stanley Moss died Friday at the age of ninety-nine.

His work often covered such painful topics as the Holocaust and the loss of loved ones, sometimes confronting, in the words of his New York Times obituary, "a God he deemed oblivious of mankind."
