Author Info
Leon Uris
Uris was educated in Baltimore and Philadelphia, then enlisted in the Marines in 1942, when he was 18. He served until 1946, and married a fellow marine, Sgt. Betty Beck (whom he later divorced, after three children). Uris began to write after the war, producing his first novel, BATTLE CRY, in 1953, which established him as a successful popular writer. He also wrote a number of screenplays, including the 1955 script for BATTLE CRY and such classics as GUNFIGHT AT THE O.K. CORRAL. In 1958, his novel EXODUS, a monumental work about the emergence of Israel, was published to tremendous acclaim, and also made into a successful movie. (Most of Uris's novels, in fact, have been filmed.) He has written frequently about Zionism and other Jewish themes, but he has also written sagas of the Irish and their troubles, including a photographic essay, IRELAND: A TERRIBLE BEAUTY, with his third wife, a photographer.
