Charles Newman (1938 2006) was born in St. Louis and grew up in the Chicago area. In 1964 he became editor of "TriQuarterly", which he nurtured into a journal with an international reputation. Newman s own novels have been compared to the work of both Thomas Pynchon and J. D. Salinger, and his two works of nonfiction are both classics of the form.
