About the Author:

Paul M. Levitt grew up in an iconoclasitc family that revered education and thought that the measure of a great sociey was not how often it pandered to special interests, but how well it treated the poor. Newark, New Jersey, once a pleasant garden suburb of New York City, was his place of birth. Here the author received from learned women a public education in reading and writing that aimed at accomplishment, not self-esteem. He moved to Los Angeles as a teenager and fell under the spell of basketball, which taught him aesthetics and self-discipline. At the University of Colorado, he took a B.A. in philosophy and an M.A. in history. After a year in Florence, Italy, he attended Washington University in St. Louis and then matriculated at UCLA for an M.A. and a Ph.D. in English. He has taught at the University of Colorado since 1964, with a stint as a vistiting professor at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. His interests include travel, tennis, and swimming, but most of all the reading and writing of historical fiction, which enabled him to visit the Jazz Age (Chin Music), McCarthyism (Dark Matters), university life under a gangster president (Bogus U.), immigrants to America (Come with Me to Bablyon), and 12th-century England, the setting of The Saint-Makers.
