Michael Cunningham


Pulitzer Prize laureate Michael Cunningham was born in 1952, in Cincinnati, Ohio, and grew up in Pasadena, Califoirnia. An American classic, his work is a form of poetry—“a genre-bending, haunting, transormative ode to life.”


The author takes risks with his readers—who are often held suspended over a guillotine’s blade. The criminal becomes a smile which never fades away.


Michael Cunningham’s works include:  A Home at the End of the World, Flesh and Blood, The Hours, Specimen Days, By Nightfall, The Snow Queen, A Wild Swan, and Glory which is forthcoming.


“I seem to be interested in whether love and hope—the love of life that hope implies—can survive.”


Michael Cunningham lives in New York.
