Inscription.  Since his first novel was published in 1964, Stanley Lawrence Elkin's literary stature has grown unabated.

A member of the American Academy and Institute of the Arts and Letters, he received Guggenheim and Rockefeller Foundation Fellowships, the Longview Foundation Award, and the Paris Review Humor Prize. Elkin's novella, "The Bailbondsman," was made into a movie. In 1982 Stanley Elkin won the National Book Critics Circle Award.
