The American writerLarryCollins, who has died, aged 75, of a cerebral haemorrhage, achieved fame with Is Paris Burning?, the first of the many books he wrote with the Frenchman, Dominique Lapierre.
If he was part of the news-literature duality, Collins leaned strongly on the news side, with the proviso that he and Lapierre always chose as the subject of their mega-earning books topics from the recent past.
Collins reasoned that the events, if sufficiently important, would stay in people's memory, and that, given the elapse of time, those who took part in them would be more likely to talk.
