Aw man. I never heard him speak but have one of his books, A Different Mirror, which was freshman reading at my alma mater one year. I got the book but never finished it. Maybe during all my free time coming up (hah).
ETA: Oh no, just read that he killed himself because of the pain of MS. That is awful. Poor man.
