VJ Books Presents Author James Lee Burke!

James Lee BurkeA Note from John: "It is no secret that I am a great fan of Burke's writing -- to say that his prose is the best is a major understatement. He is simply the master of the written word -- hands down -- no contest."

James Lee Burke was born in Houston, Texas, in 1936 and grew up on the Texas-Louisiana gulf coast. He attended Southwestern Louisiana Institute and later received a B. A. Degree in English and an M. A. from the University of Missouri in 1958 and 1960 respectively. Over the years he worked as a landman for Sinclair Oil Company, pipeliner, land surveyor, newspaper reporter, social worker on Skid Row in Los Angeles, clerk for the Louisiana Employment Service, instructor in the U. S. Job Corps, English professor at multiple universities, including as a tenured professor at Wichita State University.

Burke won the Edgar Award for Best Crime Novel of the Year twice: in 1990 and 1998. He has also been a recipient of a Breadloaf and Guggenheim Fellowship and an NEA grant, and was awarded the Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Award in 2009. Two of his novels, Heaven's Prisoners and Two For Texas, have been made into motion pictures. His short stories have been published in The Atlantic Monthly, New Stories from the South, Best American Short Stories, Antioch Review, Southern Review, and The Kenyon Review. Perhaps most incredibly, his novel The Lost Get-Back Boogie was rejected 111 times over a period of nine years before finally being published by Louisiana State University Press, at which point it was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.

Today Burke and his wife, Pearl, live in Missoula, Montana, and New Iberia, Louisiana. They have four children: Jim Jr., an assistant U.S. Attorney; Andree, a school psychologist; Pamala, a T. V. ad producer; and Alafair, a law professor and published novelist.
