Author Info
Paul Zindel
Zindel's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, THE EFFECT OF GAMMA RAYS ON MAN-IN-THE-MOON MARIGOLDS, brought him to the attention of Charlotte Zolotow, an editor who encouraged him to write young adult novels. His first work for young adults, THE PIGMAN, appeared in 1968. Zindel is often credited with changing the face of young adult literature, creating more realistic works that reflect such themes as loneliness, eccentricity, and sexuality.
