Sweeping narrative depicting the complications which accompany the phenomenal success of a young novelist from Kentucky *Author: Wouk, Herman *Publication Date: 1992/05/15 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 1.75 *Width: 8.25 *Height: 8.25
From the Publisher:
A brilliant first novel catapults Arthur Youngblood Hawke form an impoverished Kentucky town to the heights of New York's literary world. The tall, ruggedly good-looking writer is suddenly big news, and everyone can sense his magic and the heady smell of money-to-be-made: publishers, agents, film producers, theatrical entrepreneurs, predatory women--a gallery of acidly comic portraits. During his turbulent mercurial career, Hawke struggles to keep writing his books despite the demands thrust upon him by celebrity and wealth, and the story drives at last to a stark, devastating climax.
Author Bio
Herman Wouk
Wouk's parents were Russian-Jewish immigrants. His father owned a chain of laundries in New York City. Born in the Bronx, Wouk graduated from Columbia at 19. By the age of 20, he was a comedy writer for radio. He served in the U.S. Navy during World War II where, during the long hours at sea, he began to write fiction. He was a successful writer from the beginning. His first novel, AURORA DAWN, was published in 1947; his second, CITY BOY, was a bestseller compared to TOM SAWYER. Wouk's most commercially successful novel was THE CAINE MUTINY, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1951. He is also the author of MARJORIE MORNINGSTAR (1955) and an epic, two-volume World War II novel comprising THE WINDS OF WAR and REMEMBRANCE. Many of his books have been made into popular movies. Wouk's fiction often deals with Jewish themes and characters; his non-fiction book THIS IS MY GOD is a compilation of Jewish beliefs and traditions.

Praise

Los Angeles Times
"'Hawke' is a tremendous novel, rich and meaty, full of wisdom and pain....It's the veritable Big Balzac....My guess is that it will be around...as long as people are interested in sex, money, the creation of art, and characters who continue to blaze in a readers memory long after the last page is turned." - Dick Adler 01/05/1992
