| 15 Comments

The daughter of Newsday columnist Jimmy Breslin began her reporting career at the L.A. Herald Examiner, later wrote for the New York Times and NY Daily News, and penned scripts for "NYPD Blue." After being afflicted with an unnamed and life-threatening blood disorder, she wrote essays about this turn in her life for the L.A. Times and Newsday. Her memoir, Not Exactly What I Had in Mind: An Incurable Love Story, came out in 1997. Breslin died of her mysterious disease Monday in New York. Said former Her-Ex editor Don Forst, now the Editor of the Village Voice: "She was smart, she was learning how to write, she was always eager for help in becoming better at what she was doing." Obits in Newsday and the New York Times.
