John O'Hara

a.k.a. John Henry O'Hara

Author Code: AJHO

Born: Jan. 31, 1905 - Pottsville, Pennsylvania, USA

Died: Apr. 11, 1970 - Princeton, New Jersey, USA

Educated at Niagara Prep School in Lewiston, New York, O'Hara had hoped to attend Yale, but was unable to due to the death of his father. Instead, he took various reporting jobs with local newspapers until moving to New York City. There he began to contribute short stories to periodicals, especially The New Yorker. He published his first novel, Appointment in Samarra, in 1931 and received rave reviews. He was a war correspondent in the Pacific during World War II. Following the war, he continued his success in screenplays and some excellent novels, including Ten North Frederick, which won the 1956 National Book Award. During the 1950's and 1960's, O'Hara wrote various newspaper columns, including Newsday, but it was his short stories in which he excelled. Many of his novels were adapted for films including Butterfield 8 (1935) and Pal Joey (1940), the latter of which he wrote the libretto. nevertheless, O'Hara's abrasive personality was his worst enemy and goes some way in explaining his lack of popularity among literary critics. O'Hara was vain, opinionated and outspoken which led many to ignore his work. In spite of this, he still ranks as one of the best selling authors of the 20th century. His other works include Hope of Heaven (1938), Pipe Night (1945), A Rage to Live (1949), From the Terrace (1958), The Cape Cod Lighter (1962), Waiting for Winter (1966), The Instrument (1967) and The Ewings (1970).
