Clifford Irving was a great writer, and a great character.
Although he published 20 novels, he was probably best known for a
hoax "autobiography" allegedly written as told to Irving by
billionaire recluse Howard Hughes.
By the time I met Clifford, he was a gentle old man. We talked during the winter of 2016 about his life, his career, and his general world view.
Clifford passed away on December 19.
