O jornalista e escritor Carlos Heitor Cony morreu na noite desta sexta-feira (5), no Rio de Janeiro.

Cony era quinto ocupante da Cadeira nº 3 da ABL. Ele foi eleito em 23 de março de 2000, na sucessão de Herberto Sales e recebido em 31 de maio de 2000 pelo acadêmico Arnaldo Niskier. Ele teve falência múltipla de órgãos. Ele tinha 91 anos e estava internado no Hospital Samaritano do Rio de Janeiro desde o último dia 26 de dezembro por problemas no intestino. Trabalhou no extinto Jornal do Brasil, no Correio da Manhã e Manchete, onde iniciou no campo da teledramaturgia. Cony foi um dos que se arrependeram de apoiar a queda de Goulart que resultou no golpe militar de 1964 e veio depois a opor-se abertamente ao golpe, tendo sido preso por seis vezes ao longo do período do regime militar. Numa das prisões (em 1965), teve como companheiros, entre outros, Flávio Rangel, Glauber Rocha, Antonio Callado, Mário Carneiro, Jayme Azevedo Rodrigues, Márcio Moreira Alves, Thiago de Mello e Joaquim Pedro de Andrade.

Mais tarde, trabalhou, por mais de 30 anos na revista "Manchete" e foi diretor de "Fatos & Fotos", "Desfile" e "Ele Ela". Também foi autor de livros de crônicas, coletâneas de contos e novelas para a TV. Na década de 1990, substituiu Otto Lara Resende como cronista da "Folha de S.Paulo" e acabou entrando para o conselho editorial do mesmo jornal. Venceu uma série de prêmios literários, entre eles três Jabutis.

Cony foi autor de romances conceituados, como O Ventre (1958), Pilatos (1973), Quase Memória (1995) e O piano e a Orquestra (1996). Nos últimos anos vivia recluso, cuidado por três enfermeiros.
