Author-journalist ERSKINE CALDWELL (1903-1987) made his mark on American literature with such classics on the South as Tobacco Road (1932) and God's Little Acre (1933). Playwright EDWARD F. ALBEE (1928-2016), whose plays include Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1962) and All Over (1971), won the 1967 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for A Delicate Balance (1966). Science fiction Hugo Award winner, ISAAC ASMIOV (1920-1992) was more than a novelist, also writing science and theology textbooks, including his sci-fi Foundation trilogy (1951-1953) and his scientific text, The Human Brain (1964). ALEX HALEY (1921-1992) won a 1977 Pulitzer Prize for Roots, his poignant saga of American slavery that was adapted into an award-winning television mini-series. STEPHEN KING, a master of the horror genre, has written a long list of bestsellers, many of which have been adapted for the screen or as TV miniseries. LEON URIS (1924-2003) reflected on the centuries-long plight of the Semites in Exodus (1958). He also wrote the script for that film and for Battle Cry (based on his 1953 book). Author/critic ROBERT PENN WARREN (1905-1989) won Pulitzer Prizes in 1947 for All The King's Men, his 1946 biographical novel of Huey Long, and in 1958 for his poetic work, Promises: Poems 1954-1956 (1957), becoming the first to win in both the fiction and poetry categories. Lightly rippled. Light rectangular stain at lower right margin from removal of address label underlines Uris' signature. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 24½x20.
