Author Biography - Norton Juster

Norton Juster was born in New York State in 1929, just prior to the Great Depression of 1929. There are still a number of people who attribute that catastrophic event directly to his birth. He grew up (carefully) in Brooklyn, studied architecture at the University of Pennsylvania, and spent a year in Liverpool on a Fulbright Scholarship, doing graduate work in urban planning and learning to ride a motorcycle. After spending three years in the US Navy, he practised architecture in New York and Massachusetts before teaching architecture and planning. He began writing seriously while in the Navy. His work includes The Dot and the Line, which was made into an animated film, and a musical adaptation of The Phantom Tollbooth. Between the teaching, architecture and writing his life can sometimes get quite hectic. of the three things he does, Mr Juster enjoys most the two he is not doing at any given time. He is married and lives in Massachusetts. He has one daughter and one granddaughter. The Phantom Tollbooth, his most famous book, won the George C. Stone Center for Children's Books Award.
