John Edgar Wideman

John Edgar Wideman (born June 14, 1941) is an American author of novels, memoirs, short stories, essays, and other works. Among the most critically acclaimed American writers of his generation, he was the first person to win the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction twice. His writing is known for experimental techniques and a focus on the African-American experience.

Raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Wideman excelled as a student athlete at the University of Pennsylvania. In 1963, he became the second African American to win a Rhodes Scholarship to attend the University of Oxford. In addition to his work as a writer, Wideman has had a career in academia as a literature and creative writing professor at both public and Ivy League universities.

In his writing, Wideman has explored the complexities of storytelling, family, race, trauma, and justice in the United States. His personal experience, including the incarceration of his brother, has played a significant role in his work.

Currently, he is a professor emeritus at Brown University and lives in New York City and France. Provided by Wikipedia
