About the Author:
Robert Traver (1903-1991), the pseudonym for John D. Voelker, was an associate justice of the Michigan Supreme Court when his novel Anatomy of a Murder, later made into the classic movie with Jimmy Stewart, rocketed him to national fame. Soon afterward, in his mid-fifties, he quit the bench in order to write and fish and hunt morels near Ishpeming, Michigan. His eleven books include Hornstein's Boy, The Jealous Mistress, Anatomy of a Murder, and Small Town D.A.
Nick Lyons, a former professor of English at Hunter College, was John Voelker's editor for Trout Magic. He writes frequently about fishing and lives in New York City. Recently, he edited the bestselling collection Hemingway on Fishing.
