When he passed away, he was full 52 years old. According to the reports of The New York Times, His wife has stated that he died of cancer. His acclaimed works boldly explored historical and narrative conventions to examine how the past could influence the present.
Both the novels and short stories written by Mr. La Farge were difficult to classify, but they shared a certain daring on the part of the author. Red Hook, New York in the Hudson Valley was home to Mr. La Farge who became something of a magnet for a group of writers including Gary Shteyngart, a novelist and memoirist who was a fan.
Author Gary Shteyngart, along with friends, colleagues and fans has taken to social media to express their sadness at La Farge’s passing and reflect on the impact of his work.
Paul La Farge, one of my dearest friends, really more like a brother, has passed away. For those who have yet to read his books, perhaps start with The Night Ocean. He was as generous and witty with his prose as he was with his friends. Those who knew him truly loved him. pic.twitter.com/MHinJjTcsM
