R.I.P.: Jim Strahs

October 13, 2011


I just heard the news that Jim Strahs died October 1. He was an amazing, highly original writer who contributed texts to several Wooster Group pieces (most notably North Atlantic and the “Rig” section of Point Judith) and wrote a few hard-bitten novels, one of which — Wrong Guys — Mabou Mines adapted for the stage. I interviewed him for the Village Voice at the time that his novel Queer and Alone was published. My article was headlined “Not Rich and Not Famous,” which is accurate — but I want to say “Not Forgotten,” not by me anyway. Many of his works are available for free download from his website.
