Post-90 Bloomer: Herman Wouk


9 April 2012

That’s right, not a typo, post NINETY.

Thanks to Nick at The Millions for alerting me to this:

96-year-old novelist Herman Wouk has sold his latest novel to Simon & Schuster. The Lawgiver follows the production of a movie about Moses through “letters, memos, emails, journals, news articles, recorded talk, tweets, Skype transcripts, and text messages” sent between characters.

Not his debut, obviously, but still.  If blooming is understood as “peaking,” this is quite an impressive late-life peak.
