Let's try another American author who may not have died as young as Hemingway, but the death was oddly tragic. As was his habit, this author placed the cap of his eye drops in his mouth before tossing his head back to administer the eye drops. Different, huh?
I guess you'd call this a freakish, once-in-a-million type of occcurance. On the night he died, the bottle cap became lodged in his throat, and alone in his hotel room in New York, there was no one to come to his aid. It is believed that alcohol and prescriptions drugs may have contributed to his death by having weakened his gag reflex.
Such a successful author ... yet, maybe fate had another plan.
So, do you know who this mystery author is? If you want to make a guess ... please leave a comment. I'd love to hear from you!
STILL NO TAKERS? TIME'S UP! AND THE ANSWER IS ..... TENNESSEE WILLIAMS.
