(AP) Author-journalist Joe McGinniss says he was diagnosed in May with advanced prostate cancer but is responding well to treatment and feels terrific.
The 70-year-old McGinniss is best known for controversial works such as The Selling of the President and Fatal Vision. On Wednesday, he posted on his Facebook page that he had inoperable, terminal, metastatic prostate cancer. He confirmed the diagnosis in response to an email from The Associated Press and in a subsequent Facebook posting.
McGinniss told the AP that he has no symptoms and is eager to write more books and magazine articles.
