Author Larry Collins dead from cerebral hemorrhage at age 75

UPI News Service, 06/21/2005 

Journalist and author Larry Collins, who co-wrote "Is Paris Burning?" has died of a cerebral hemorrhage at his home in France at the age of 75.

That book's co-author and his French Riviera neighbor, Dominique LaPierre, said Collins died Monday in Frejus, France.

The pair wrote novels and nonfiction works of popular history beginning in 1964 with the story of the Nazi occupation of Paris. They also co-wrote "O Jerusalem!" in 1972 and "Freedom at Midnight" in 1975, followed by "Mountbatten and the Partition of India" in 1982.

After several years of writing separately, they collaborated on a final novel, "Is New York Burning?" in 2004, the Los Angeles Times said.

After a stint in the U.S. Army in Europe, Collins worked as a correspondent for United Press International in Paris, Rome, Cairo and Beirut from 1956 until he joined Newsweek in 1959.

Collins married Nadia Hoda Sultan in 1966 and they had two sons, John Lawrence III and Michael, although information on survivors was not immediately available.
