Richard Ben Cramer Passes Away at 62

Richard Ben Cramer

Pulitzer Prize–winning reporter Richard Ben Cramer died recently in Baltimore, Maryland at the age of 62 from complications of lung cancer. "[W]idely hailed as among the finest books about American politics ever written," Cramer's classic What It Takes is a recounting of the frenzied 1988 U.S. Presidential race that scours the psyches of the contenders and penetrates the mystery at the heart of all presidential campaigns. His full New York Times obituary can be read here.
