Birth: Jul. 22, 1900, USA
Death: Feb. 27, 1977, USA

Edward Dahlberg spent his early years in Kansas City, Missouri. Later he attended the University of California at Berkeley and Columbia University. He became a "proletarian" novelist in the 30's (who experienced "Kristalnacht" first hand in Berlin). His first novel, "Bottom Dogs," was published in 1930. He joined the Communist Party. After "From Flushing to Calvary," 1932, he went into a period of seclusion. Thereafter, his writings were primarily autobiographical. He wrote an anti-Nazi novel, "Those Who Perish," published 1934 and soon after renounced Communism as necrophilic. 1941, he published an influential novel, "Do These Bones Live?" Other novels include, "The Flea of Sodom" (1950), "Because I Was Flesh" (1955), "The Sorrows of Priapus" (1957) and "Truth is More Sacred" (1961). He married R'Lene LaFleur Howell in 1950, was elected to the National Institute of Arts and Letters in 1968, was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1976. Frank McCourt wrote a scathing review of their social relationship in his memoir, Teacher Man.
