Cuban-American novelist Oscar Hijuelos has died.
His agent says he suffered a heart attack during a tennis game in Manhattan Saturday.
Hijuelos was considered a champion of the Cuban-American immigrant experience.
His 1989 work "The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love" was an international bestseller and won the Pulitzer prize for fiction, making him the first Hispanic author to win the honor.
It was also made into a movie.
Hijuelos was born and raised in New York City.
He was 62 years old.
