Born in France in 1928, RAYMOND FEDERMAN emigrated to the US in 1947, following the deaths of his mother, father, and two sisters at Auschwitz. His early experiences in the US included time as an American paratrooper in Korea, a saxophone player in Detroit, a dishwasher, and student. Federman taught literature, creative writing, and French at SUNY at Buffalo from 1964-1998, before retiring as the Melodia E. Jones Chair of French. He is the author of over twenty books of fiction, poetry, and criticism, translated into German, Italian, French, Hungarian, Polish, Serbian, Rumanian, Hebrew, Dutch, Greek, Japanese, and Chinese. Federman is also the recipient of Guggenheim, Fulbright, National Endowment for the Arts, and New York State Foundation for the Arts fellowships, as well as numerous foreign awards. (bookjones)
