Introduction by Jerome Weidman

Popular Press

There are 250,000,000+ readers of Irving Wallace's books. Few know that the facts of his life are as fascinating as those characters he has made famous in his fiction. John Leverance's book is the perfect introduction to the personality behind The Chapman Report, The Prize, The Three Sirens, The Man, The Plot, The Seven Minutes, The Word, and The Fan Club. Through correspondence, diaries, manuscript annotations, interviews and other private sources, Leverance reveals the man who began as a sports stringer for a Wisconsin newspaper and became one of the world's most popular novelists.
