Steve Kluger

Steve Kluger is an author and playwright from Baltimore, Maryland, who grew up with only two heroes: Tom Seaver and Ethel Merman. Few were able to grasp the concept. A veteran of Casablanca and a graduate of The Graduate, he has written extensively on subjects as far ranging as World War II, rock and roll, and the Titanic; and as close to the heart as baseball and the Boston Red Sox (which frequently have nothing to do with one another). He has also pursued a somewhat weird path as a civil rights advocate, campaigning for a "Save Fenway Park" initiative (which qualifies as a civil right if you're a Red Sox fan), counseling gay teenagers, and - on behalf of Japanese American internment redress - lobbying the Department of the Interior to restore the baseball diamond at the Manzanar National Historic Site. Meanwhile, he has worked with organizations such as Lambda Legal Defense; the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network (GLSEN); and Models of Pride; and spends the rest of his time with his seventeen nephews and nieces (official and unofficial). Mr. Kluger's novels include Changing Pitches (1984); Last Days of Summer (1998), Almost Like Being in Love (2004); and My Most Excellent Year (2008). For the stage, so far, he has written Bullpen (1984), a Boston Red Sox comedy (published by Samuel French); Cafe '50s (1988), a "medium-rare comedy with a shake"; Pilots of the Purple Twilight (1989), a comedy-drama set on board the Titanic; and the romantic comedy After Dark (2001). He also published a World War II history entitled Yank (1990), and is a regular contributor to newspapers such as USA Today and the Boston Globe. Mr. Kluger lives in Boston, Massachusetts - the only city in the world.
