Short biography
Leopold Perutz, born near Prague, was a member of literary and musical circles in Vienna. He served in World War I, and wrote his first novel, The Third Bullet (1915), while recovering from a wound he sustained. Perutz also was a mathematician who formulated an algebraic equation named after him. He supported himself working as an actuary for an insurance company. He fled the Nazis during the 1938 invasion of Austria and went to the British Protectorate of Palestine. He wrote 10 more critically aclaimed novels, most of which have been translated into English. During the 1950s, Perutz returned occasionally to Austria and died in the spa town of Bad Ischl.
