Sad news today -- Jeffrey Zaslow, who wrote such popular non-fiction as "The Last Lecture" and "The Girls from Ames," died today in a car crash in Michigan. The Wall Street Journal, where he has worked as a reporter, said that he died after losing control of his car while driving on a snowy road and colliding with a truck. He was 53, the Journal said. Zaslow's biggest hit was as co-author of "The Last Lecture," an inspirational tale of Randy Pausch, the Carnegie Mellon University computer science professor who soldiered on while facing pancreatic cancer that would kill him. "The Girls from Ames," detailed a decades-long friendship among a group of women, and was a favorite of books clubs nationwide.
