"From the 1950s through the 1980s, John D. MacDonald was one of the most popular and prolific writers in America. He was a crime writer who managed to break free of the genre and finally get serious consideration from critics. Seventy of his novels and more than five hundred of his short stories were published in his lifetime. When he died in 1986, more than seventy million copies of his books had been sold." "This biography of a popular author adds resonance to the body of MacDonald's creative work, as well as providing a deeper understanding of that work that will send reders back to his many books."--Jacket.
