David Graeber, anthropologist and author of Bullshit Jobs, dies aged 59

quote [ On Thursday Graeber’s wife, the artist and writer Nika Dubrovsky, announced on Twitter that Graeber had died in hospital in Venice the previous day. The cause of death is not yet known.

Renowned for his biting and incisive writing about bureaucracy, politics and capitalism, Graeber was a leading figure in the Occupy Wall Street movement and professor of anthropology at the London School of Economics (LSE) at the time of his death. His final book, The Dawn of Everything: a New History of Humanity, written with David Wengrove, will be published in autumn 2021. ]

Damn, that's a shame. My ToRead list still has a number of his titles on it. Wink, wink. Nudge nudge.
