The American writer Larry Collins, 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.
