American writer Larry McMortry, who was especially famous for his co-writing of the film “Brokeback Mountain”, died at the age of 84.
The late Amanda Lundberg, business director, said, “McCormorty died of cardiac arrest,” noting in a statement that the writer “was surrounded by his loved ones with whom he lived, including his old writing partner Diana Osana, his wife Norma Fey and their three dogs”, as was his son, singer James. McCormtry and his grandson are present. The writer will be buried in his native Texas.
In 2006, McCormtry and Diana Osana won an Oscar for “Brokeback Mountain” based on the short story Annie Prolux.
McMortry, who was described by one of his publishers as “Flaubert of the Great Plains,” has 30 novels, the most successful of which is “Lonsam Dove,” and more than 40 scenarios.
