About Alexander Theroux

Alexander Louis Theroux[1] (born 1939) is an American novelist and poet whose best known novel is perhaps Darconville’s Cat (1981) which was selected by Anthony Burgess’s Ninety-Nine Novels: The Best in English since 1939 – A Personal Choice in 1984 and in Larry McCaffery’s 20th Century’s Greatest Hits. He was awarded the Lannan Literary Award for Fiction in 1991 and the Clifton Fadiman Medal for Fiction in 2002 by the Mercantile Library in New York City. He is the brother of novelist Paul Theroux and uncle of documentarian Louis Theroux.
His first novel, Three Wogs, was written during a stay in London and was briefly considered for performance by BBC television by the actor, Roy Dotrice. His second novel, Darconville’s Cat was nominated for the National Book Award. He published the fable, Master Snickup’s Cloak, which was illustrated by Brian Froud in 1979.

That was followed by several other fables, The Schinocephalic Waif and The Wragby Cars with illustrations by Stan Washburn in 1974. In 1987 he published An Adultery, and his longest, most satirical novel Laura Warholic was published in 2007. Several of his non-fiction books on color, The Primary Colors (1994) and The Secondary Colors (1996) were briefly on the best-seller list in Los Angeles. As a writer, he is known for his encyclopedic, highly allusive style, and learned wit. (Source – Wikipedia)
