Author Biography
Adler, Warren (Author)
Warren Adler is a world-renowned novelist, short story writer and playwright. His books have been translated into more than 25 languages and two of his novels, "The War of the Roses" and "Random Hearts," have been made into enormously popular movies, shown continually throughout the world.

Three short stories from his acclaimed collection "The Sunset Gang" have been adapted as a trilogy and shown on Public Television stations. Mr. Adler's 29th and most recent book, "Funny Boys," was released in 2008 by The Overlook Press and his fifth short story collection, "New York Echoes" was published in 2008 by Stonehouse Press. His play "Libido" is scheduled for an off-Broadway production and his stage adaptation of the novel "The War of the Roses" is currently being produced in Italy, Berlin, Hamburg, Prague and countries in Scandinavia.

Mr. Adler is a pioneer in electronic publishing and has acquired his complete backlist and converted this entire library to digital publishing formats. As a novelist, Mr. Adler's themes deal primarily with intimate human relationships--the mysterious nature of love and attraction, the fragile relationships between husbands and wives and parents and children, the corrupting power of money, the aging process and how families cling together when challenged by the outside world. Readers and reviewers have cited his books for their insight and wisdom in presenting and deciphering the complexities of contemporary life.

A product of the New York public school system, Mr. Adler graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School and New York University, where he majored in English literature. Inspired by his freshman English Professor Don Wolfe, Mr. Adler went on to study creative writing with Dr. Wolfe when he taught at the New School. He also studied under Dr. Charles Glicksburg at the New School.

Among his classmates were Mario Puzo, William Styron and many other talented writers. Two collections of short stories "American Vangu
