Terry Southern

Terry Southern (May 1, 1924 – October 29, 1995) was an American novelist, essayist, screenwriter, and university lecturer, noted for his distinctive satirical style. Part of the Paris postwar literary movement in the 1950s and a companion to Beat writers in Greenwich Village, Southern was also at the center of Swinging London in the 1960s and helped to change the style and substance of American films in the 1970s. He briefly wrote for ''Saturday Night Live'' in the 1980s.

Southern's dark and often absurdist style of satire helped to define the sensibilities of several generations of writers, readers, directors and film goers. He is credited by journalist Tom Wolfe as having invented New Journalism with the publication of "Twirling at Ole Miss" in ''Esquire'' in February 1963. Southern's reputation was established with the publication of his comic novels ''Candy'' and ''The Magic Christian'' and through his gift for writing memorable film dialogue as evident in ''Dr. Strangelove'', ''The Loved One'', ''The Cincinnati Kid'', and ''The Magic Christian''. His work on ''Easy Rider'' helped create the independent film movement of the 1970s. Provided by Wikipedia
