Controversial US author Joe McGinniss, who pushed the boundaries of journalistic convention, at times becoming nearly as notorious as his subjects, has died. He was 71.
News reports said McGinniss passed away Monday at a hospital in Worcester, Massachusetts.
The writer's death was confirmed on his Facebook page, which for months offered a running account of his losing battle with prostate cancer.
McGinniss's unique literary niches included America's political leaders, as well as country club psychopaths.
