Evan S. Connell was born in Kansas City in 1924. He served in the US navy in the second world war and lived briefly in Paris before returning to the US, where he wrote and supported himself with odd jobs. His incredibly varied books range from long experimental poems to a best-selling biography of General Custer, but he will be remembered above all for his two undisputed masterpieces about middle-class, suburban American life: Mrs Bridge and Mr Bridge. In 2009, he was nominated for the Man Booker International Prize for lifetime achievement, and in 2010, he was awarded a Los Angeles Times Book Prize. Evan S. Connell died in New Mexico on 10th January 2013, aged 88. Joshua Ferris was born in Chicago in 1975. His first novel, Then We Came to the End (2007), won the Hemingway Foundation/PEN Award, was a National Book Award Finalist and was longlisted for the Guardian First Book Award. His second novel is The Unnamed (2010), and his fiction has appeared in The New Yorker, Granta and Tin House, among other publications. He lives in New York.
