US author Noah Gordon dies age 95


US author Noah Gordon, whose bestselling novels included “The Physician,” died Monday at the age of 95, his family said. “With great sadness the family of Noah Gordon announces that Noah passed away November 22, 2021, in the privacy of his home,” his relatives said in a statement on his official website.

“Noah recently celebrated his 95th birthday with much pleasure, appreciative of the long and fruitful life he has lived.”

Born on November 11, 1926 in Worcester, Massachusetts, Gordon was raised by a Jewish family. He initially studied medicine, as his parents wanted, but switched to journalism after a semester. Among other outlets, he began working at the Boston Herald newspaper in 1959 and subsequently became editor-in-chief of Science magazine.

He later switched to freelance journalism and continued to write science articles in addition to novels.—AP
