Born in that city and raised in Missouri, he attended Black Mountain College, did military service, then returned to New York. The author of many books of fiction and memoirs ("An Emotional Memoir of Franz Kline" "The Black Mountain Book" come immediately to mind), his remarkable energy and enthusiasm (leaving sufficient for baseball) during his last years were directed to the teaching of Creative Writing in prisons.
