About the Author:

Robert Lowell Coover was born in Iowa, 1932. Between studying undergraduate Slavic Studies and a Masters degree in Humanities he served in the US Navy. His novels and short stories address communism and US politics, none more so than his most famous work, The Public Burning (1977), in which he also employs the technique of magic realism. He is currently an author and professor in the Literary Arts program at Brown University, splitting his time between the USA and London. He is one of America's pioneering postmodernists.
