Norman Spinrad

An American author of science fiction, Norman Spinrad was born in New York in 1940. After living in San Francisco, Los Angeles and London, he moved to Paris in 1988. In the 1960s and ‘70s, he updated the genre of the science fiction novel with his controversial works. Thus, in 1968, Bug Jack Barron evokes the racial tensions that shook the United States and, in 1972, The Iron Dream imagines Hitler reconverted as a writer of heroic fantasy after failing to rise to power. The latter book won the Apollo Prize in 1974.

Through his novels and short stories, often of a rebellious spirit, Norman Spinrad denounces the ills of our society such as media manipulation, the weight of political power, racism, and the ultra-liberalism of the Reagan years. His latest book, Osama the Gun, is about the career of a young terrorist... He has won many literary prizes (including the Utopia Prize and the Cosmos Prize, in 2000), has written about the work of photographer Nicolas Moulin and has a keen interest in the world of contemporary art.
