About the Author:

Lawrence Lee was a Peabody Award-winning San Francisco journalist who also co-wrote with Gifford the brilliant and brilliantly received "Jack's Book." He died in 1990.

Barry Gifford is a literary lion whose novels have been translated into twenty-five languages and who's been the recipient of awards from PEN, the National Endowment for the Arts, the American Library Association, and the Writers Guild of America. His novel "Wild at Heart" was turned into a David Lynch film, and he co-wrote the screenplays for "Lost Highway" (1997) and "City of Ghosts" (2003). His more recent books, "Wyoming" and "The Phantom Father" were named the Los Angeles Times Novel of the Year and a New York Times notable Book of the Year, respectively. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
