Anthony Burgess
Birth: Feb. 25, 1917
Death: Nov. 22, 1993

Author, Composer. Born in Manchester, England, he served in World War II and as an education officer in the Far East before beginning his writing career. Burgess wrote over fifty books, critical studies, journal articles and screenplays. He is best known for his futuristic novel "A Clockwork Orange" (1962) later adapted into a film by director Stanley Kubrick. His many works include " Earthly Powers", "The Long Day Wanes", "Nothing Like the Sun", "The Wanting Seed", "The Kingdom of the Wicked", "Ernest Hemingway and his World", "Ninety-nine Novels: The Best in English since 1939 – A Personal Choice", "An Essay on Censorship", and "Spain: The Best Travel Writing from the New York Times". Burgess was also a composer but most of his music went unpublished; among his compositions are "Chaika", "Cantata for a Malay college", "Trotsky in New York", and "Music for Hiroshima". He published two volumes of autobiography before his death: "Big God and Little Wilson" and "You've Had Your Time." In films he created the prehistoric language used in "Quest for Fire." He died in London and his ashes were interred in Monte Carlo. (bio by: José L Bernabé Tronchoni)
