Biographical/Historical Note

Vance Bourjaily (Bowdoin 1944) was born in 1922 and was a noted author of books, magazine articles, stage and television plays, and other works. Much of his early material was drawn from his experiences with the American Field Service (1942-1944), where he served as an ambulance driver in Syria, Egypt, and Italy, and the U.S. Army (1944-1946), where he served as an infantryman in Japan. He was a journalist, co-founding and editing the journal Discovery (1951), a faculty member at the University of Arizona and the University of Iowa's Writers Workshop, and the first director of the Master of Fine Arts program in creative writing at Louisiana State University.

Bourjaily's novels include The End of My Life, Brill Among the Ruins, Now Playing at Canterbury and A Game Men Play.

In 1947 Bourjaily married Bettina Yensen, with whom he had three children. Bourjaily married Yasmin Mogul in 1985. He died in 2010.
