James A. Michener

Michener in 1991 James Albert Michener (; February 3, 1907 – October 16, 1997) was an American author of more than 40 books, most of which were fictional, lengthy family sagas covering the lives of many generations in particular geographic locales and incorporating solid history. Michener had numerous bestsellers and works selected for Book of the Month Club, and was known for his meticulous research behind the books.

Michener's novels include ''Tales of the South Pacific'' for which he won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1948, ''Hawaii'', ''The Drifters'', ''Centennial'', ''The Source'', ''The Fires of Spring'', ''Chesapeake'', ''Caribbean'', ''Caravans'', ''Alaska'', ''Texas'', ''Space'', and ''Poland''. His non-fiction works include ''Iberia'', about his travels in Spain and Portugal; his memoir titled ''The World Is My Home''; and ''Sports in America''. ''Return to Paradise'' combines fictional short stories with Michener's factual descriptions of the Pacific areas where they take place.

His first book was adapted as the popular Broadway musical ''South Pacific'' by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, and later as eponymous feature films in 1958 and 2001, adding to his financial success. He also wrote an analysis of the United States' Electoral College system in a book which condemned it, entitled ''Presidential Lottery: The Reckless Gamble in Our Electoral System''. It was published in 1969, and republished in 2014 and 2016. Provided by Wikipedia
