A bit about Louis Auchincloss ...

Louis Stanton Auchincloss (born September 27, 1917) is a prolific U.S. novelist, historian and essayist. Born in New York City, he grew up among the privileged classes he was to write about, attending Groton and Yale University where he was editor of the Yale Literary Magazine. After serving in the Navy in World War II, Auchincloss wondered whether to become a writer or a lawyer and finally realized he could do both (although he did not complete his undergraduate studies at Yale, he was admitted to and attended law school at the University of Virginia), producing a fiction book a year while serving as a wills and trusts attorney with Hawkins, Delafield & Wood, a major Wall Street law firm.
