RIP Peter Matthiessen

I've only read Far Tortuga, but thought it was very good. Guess I'll have to read the others now. Matthiessen was a writer of a particular type, erudite but never the least bit showy, deeply interested in human beings both as individuals and in the aggregate. His last book will be published on Tuesday. Here's the Guardian obit.
