Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A literary lion for over two decades in the late 20th century, novelist, playwright and essayist Herman Wouk's body of work included the Pulitzer Prize-winning Caine Mutiny (1951) as well the sprawling World War II narratives The Winds of War. The mystery of faith, whether experienced by soldiers at war, an aspiring actress, or victims of the Holocaust, was the main focus of Wouk's fiction, which topped the bestseller lists from the late 1950s through the mid-1970s. Wouk would more directly address issues of Judaism, inter-faith relations, and the relationship between science and religion in a series of well-received non-fiction work that began in 1959 with This is My God (1959), which became a seminal work on the subject. Winds of War and its sequel, War and Remembrance (1978), were Wouk's most accomplished books, requiring 13 years of research to tell the multi-layered story of lives during World War II; both would later become Emmy-winning miniseries in the mid-1980s. Wouk continued to write well into his nineties, still mining the key themes of his career with The Hope (1993) and The Lawgiver. His ceaseless curiosity over the relationship between faith and secular life, penned in terms both epic...

His ceaseless curiosity over the relationship between faith and secular life, penned in terms both epic and intimate, made Wouk one of the most accomplished modern writers.
