ERSKINE CALDWELL (1903-1987) made his mark on American literature with such classics about life in 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. Among his many works are 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 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.
