Novelist and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Doug Marlette died yesterday in a single-car accident in Mississippi at the age of 57, when the car that he was a passenger in struck a tree. Marlette won a Pulitzer in 1988 for his cartoons in the Observer and Atlanta Journal-Consititution. He later worked at New York Newsday and the Tallahassee Democrat. He also drew a popular nationally syndicated comic strip, "Kudzu", and wrote two novels - The Bridge (2001), which was voted Best Book of the Year for Fiction by the Southeast Booksellers Association; and Magic Time (2006) which received exceptional reviews and was published in paperback in June 2007.
