Elliott Baker was born in 1922 in Buffalo, New York, graduated from Indiana University, and was an infantry rifleman in WWII. His works have been published in numerous countries and languages. These include his novels, A FINE MADNESS (1964), THE PENNY WARS (1968), POCOCK & PITT (1971), KLYNT'S LAW (1976), AND WE WERE YOUNG (1979), UNHEALTHFUL AIR (1988), and DOCTOR LOPEZ (1995). A partial biography, UNREQUITED LOVES, was published in 1974 and a collection of essays, BARDOLATRY, in 1992. He has written for both television and motion pictures (receiving an Emmy nomination for this teleplay THE ENTERTAINER), and his fiction and non-fiction have appeared in publications ranging from GQ MAGAZINE to THE ELIZABETHAN REVIEW. In 1997, Indian University awarded him its highest honor given to an alumnus, The President's Medal for Execllence "for making a positive and profound impact in the literary field."Review:
"The portrayals of Wyndham Lewis demonstrate the profound and persistent influence of his personality and art on a number of significant poets and novelists. They als reveal that he inspired considerable hostility in Huzley and the Sitwells' reluctant respect in Auden, Rickword, Joyce and Ford; and deep loyalty and admiration in Campbell, Pound and Elliott Baker." -- London Magazine
