Evan Hunter (1926-2005) was perhaps best known for his hugely successful 87th Precinct series, penned under the pseudonym Ed McBain. A recipient of the Mystery Writers of America's coveted Grand Master Award, he was also the first American to receive the Diamond Dagger, the British Crime Writers Association's highest award. Hunter wrote the screenplay for Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds. Evan Hunter's novels have sold over one hundred million copies.

“Shocking . . . Arresting . . . Suspense-packed . . . [The Blackboard Jungle] seems to have been torn raw and bleeding out of [Hunter’s] personal experience. . . . It frays the nerves like a scream for help in a dark alley. Like The Jungle and The Grapes of Wrath, this is a book which shouts that SOMETHING OUGHT TO BE DONE.” —The New York Times Book Review
“A nightmarish but authentic first novel.” —Time
“A raw, frightening commentary on a system for which there are no easy correctives . . . A highly dramatic if devastating demonstration of the unequal job of education.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
Praise for Evan Hunter
“Under whichever name he writes, Hunter/McBain delivers the goods.” —People
“He is a flat-out master of his trade.” —Larry King, USA Today
