Justin Cronin: Literary Star Turns Into Bestselling Vampire Novelist
"He has an M.F.A. from the Iowa Writers' Workshop and a PEN/Hemingway Award for his book Mary and O'Neil,
a meditative novel about love and loss told in a series of short stories. He has never read any of the Twilight
books - 'I'm kind of not the demographic,' he says. And The Passage
is not only, or even primarily, about vampires."
