Jerome Charyn is an award-winning American author. With more than 50 published works, Charyn has earned a long-standing reputation as an inventive and prolific chronicler of real and imagined American life.

Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon calls him "one of the most important writers in American literature." New York Newsday hailed Charyn as "a contemporary American Balzac," and the Los Angeles Times described him as "absolutely unique among American writers."

Since the 1964 release of Charyn's first novel, Once Upon a Droshky, he has published thirty novels, three memoirs, eight graphic novels, two books about film, short stories, plays, and works of non-fiction. Two of his memoirs were named New York Times Book of the Year.

“stillborn love notes provide small satisfaction”
Jerome Charyn, The Secret Life of Emily Dickinson

“Trebuie să fie un fel de ușurare în faptul de a-ți fi ajuns scopurile.E ca un soi de sprint în care tocmai forțezi, după care treci linia de sosire și-ți tragi sufletul-ai reușit!De fapt, niciodată nu reușești-întotdeauna trebuie s-o iei de la capăt.”
Jerome Charyn, Marilyn the Wild
