Peter De Vries

Peter De Vries (1910-1993) was born in Chicago to Dutch immigrant parents. A prolific author of novels, short stories, parodies, poetry, and essays, he published twenty-seven books during his lifetime and was heralded by Kingsley Amis as the "funniest serious writer to be found either side of the Atlantic." De Vries was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1983, taking his place alongside Mark Twain, Dorothy Parker, and S. J. Perelman as one of the nation's greatest wits.
