Warren Adler is best known for The War of the Roses, his masterpiece fictionalization of a macabre divorce turned into the dark comedy box-office hit starring Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito. Another movie based on his novel Random Hearts starring Harrison Ford and Kristin Scott Thomas received excellent reviews.

Produced by Linda Lavin for PBS’ American Playhouse series, Adler’s The Sunset Gang, a book of short stories about a retirement community was adapted into a trilogy on PBS starring Uta Hagen, Harold Gould, Doris Roberts and Jerry Stiller. Her role in the mini-series garnered Doris Roberts an Emmy nomination. 

Sometimes dubbed the Master of Dysfunction, Adler’s themes stress intimate human relationships—the mysterious nature of love and attraction; the fragile relationships between husbands and wives, and parents and children; the corrupting power of money; the aging process; and how families cling together when challenged by the outside world. Adler’s works have been translated into 25 languages. He has taught novel writing seminars at NYU and sponsored the first online Short Story Contest. 

Born in Brooklyn, Warren Adler graduated from P.S. 91, Brooklyn Technical High School, New York University, and attended the New School. Among his classmates were Mario Puzo, William Styron, and many other talented writers. In 2009, Adler was the recipient of the “Alumni of the Year” Award at NYU’s College of Arts and Science. 
Prior to his success as a novelist, Adler had a distinguished career as an entrepreneur. He has owned four radio stations and a TV station, founded and ran his own advertising and public relations agency in Washington, D.C.; his firm Warren Adler Ltd. was responsible for advertising and PR campaigns for political candidates, numerous businesses, and apartment and home communities. Among his clients was the Watergate complex, which Adler named. He closed his agency in 1974 after the publication of his first novel, Undertow, and has since, been devoted full-time to his writing career.

He recently launched Writers of the World, a campaign featuring aspiring and established writers. With a growing fan base of over 500,000 fans on Facebook, Warren Adler regularly shares advice to aspiring writers and is considered a pioneer in the digital publishing world.
