Charles Newman

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. Newman was a Professor at Washington University in St. Louis from 1985 until his death.
