Personal Fact of Irwin Shaw

Irwin Gilbert Shamoroff, popularly known as Irwin Shaw, was an American author, novelist and playwright best remembered for his poignant and compelling style of writing. His short stories and novels are considered among the best in modern literature and have collectively sold more than 14 million copies worldwide. Some of his finest novels are The Young Lions, The Troubled Air, and Rich Man, Poor Man. Right from his childhood, he was ambitious and struggled hard to earn success. He began his writing career as a scriptwriter for radio serials.

Gradually, he progressed to writing successful plays and gripping short stories. These stories were published in various magazines in the 1940s and established him as a master of short fiction. They were acclaimed for their plots, narration, and characterization. Eventually, he also began writing Hollywood scripts and novels. For him, writing was a passionate and personal activity, cut off from the external world.

When he was not busy writing, he enjoyed playing tennis or travelling in his Hillman-Minx car. He was enthusiastic about life and had a quick natural wit. Even though most of his work was critically acclaimed, his literary reputation was weakened by the success of his commercial writing.
