May the god of comfort be a source of strength for your family at this difficult time. 2Corn 1:3, 4. Deepest Sympathy, Sue, Concord, NC
I'm late to the party, but I'm a longtime fan of his work. I entertained ideas of paying him a visit in NM. Now I wished I would have tried.
As we see at Luke 43:23 we will see Evan in paradise
Mr. Connell seemed like a person who lived his life to the fullest, Now he's asleep hoping to hear the words Lazarus heard when Jesus resurrected him saying "Lazarus come out" meaning from the grave. So for now rest in peace.
evan old friend. sorry about this god talk. did i/we miss something? i owned the no name in sausalito from 1960-74. you were one of kind. a reluctant chess partner, good neighbor on bulkley, scotch drinker, close with eve and gale and my playmate. loved by everyone. remember the trip to buy pre-columbian art? old vw and very rarely...that smile. and your tip about the lighting at the no name was invaluable and you never got credit. god talk...indeed. stay in touch.
Evan has been a very important part of my life. After meeting Evan in the seventies, my life was enriched through reading his works plus reading books written by authors he recommended. Evan was kind, generous, a perfect gentleman, a keen listener, polite, and brilliant.
My thoughts are with his family at this very sad time.

"Son of The Morning Star": One of the best books I have ever read in any genre. A "keeper", it holds a place of honor in my books collection. Thank you, Mr. Connell for enriching my life.
The family and friends of Mr. Connell have my deepest condolences for your loss. May the God who comforts all comfort you at this time.We wait for the time when Jesus will say just as he said to his friend Lazarus"Wake Up"
Sincere condolences to the family. God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily to be found in times of distress.
I am so sorry for your loss. Very soon death will be no more as God promised.
When I read Mr. Bridge and Mrs. Bridge, I was transported back to the sights, sounds, and even smells, of the Kansas City country club world they lived in. My late literary colleague, Gerald Shapiro, and I agreed we shared an indelible mark from our common experience of being KC natives and alumni of Southwest High and University of Kansas. Evan Connell captured part of that lasting essence and shared it brilliantly with the rest of the world. I am forever grateful.
What a great writer. I offer my condolences to the Connell family. God is for us refuge and strength in these times.
Mr. Connell's books, especially Son of the Morning Star, meant a great deal to me when I was a graduate student--and to this day. His passing felt like losing a valued friend. My deepest sympathy to the family.
