VJ Books Presents Norman Bogner!
Norman Bogner was born on November 13, 1935 in Brooklyn, New York. He is an author and playwright and has worked as an editor.
Bogner graduated with a B.A. in English and Humanities from Syracuse University in 1957. He went on to do graduate work in English at New York University and the New School for Social Research in 1958-59.
Turning down several teaching fellowships, Bogner chose to go to Europe to explore in person what he had learned in school.
Bogner's first novel, In Spells No Longer Bound, was published in 1961.
From 1964 to 1966, Bogner was story editor for “Armchair Theatre” at ABC Television Ltd. (later named Thames-TV) in Teddington, England. It was also at this time that he wrote The Waiters, a stage play, and The Match, a television play.
When he had a breakthrough with his novel Seventh Avenue, he was able to devote himself to writing full time.
By 1975, Norman Bogner had returned to the United States, making his home in Los Angeles, California. He continued writing, publishing Snowman in 1978 and Arena in 1979. For the next 15 years Bogner worked as a script doctor in the film and television industry, not coming out with another novel until 1998.
