American author and screenwriter, born circa 1898. He was blacklisted during the McCarthy era because of his left-wing views and forced to write under a variety of pseudonyms. He eventually gave up writing to become a carpenter and retired to "Pátzcuaro, Mexico, where he died, still bitter about the career he had lost".
