In this undated photo, author Evan S. Connell Jr. holds a mug of coffee as he stands next to the stove in his kitchen, which is embellished with a large movie poster of Sophia Loren. Connell, a literary iconoclast whose writings as a novelist, poet, essayist and historian won the admiration of critics and a cult-like following of discerning readers, has died in Santa Fe, N.M. He was 88.
