A great writer has died. American writer Russel Banks died of cancer this Saturday at the age of 82, his publisher Dan Halpern told the AP.

The author of “Adrift Continents” and “Cloudslayer” “passed away peacefully at his home in upstate New York,” tweeted writer Joyce Carol Oates this Sunday morning, paying tribute to his friend.

He had also signed the novels De beaux matins (1991) and Affliction (1989), making him one of the greatest progressive novelists.

Since his death was announced, many netizens have paid tribute to the writer and posted photos, sometimes associated with messages in his mind.

In 1995, Russel Banks, author of more than twenty books, was awarded the John Dos Passos Prize, which annually recognizes an American writer who has received little recognition during his career.
