Thomas Harris

Biografie şi Bibliografie

Thomas Harris (born April 11, 1940) is an American author and screenwriter, best known for a series of suspense novels about his most famous character, Hannibal Lecter. All of his works have been made into films, the most notable being the multi-Oscar winning The Silence of the Lambs.


Harris was born in Jackson, Tennessee, but moved as a child with his family to Rich, Mississippi; he had a difficult childhood, and was regarded as a loner by many of his peers. He attended Baylor University in Waco, Texas, where he majored in English and graduated in 1964. While in college, he worked as reporter for the local newspaper, the Waco Tribune-Herald, covering the police beat. In 1968, he moved to New York City to work for the Associated Press.

Personal life

Harris is a notorious recluse and rarely, if ever, conducts interviews. He divorced his first and only wife in the late 1960s, and has a daughter from this marriage. Fellow novelist Stephen King has remarked that if writing is tedious for other authors, to Harris it is like "writhing on the floor in agonies of frustration", because, for him, "the very act of writing is a kind of torment".[1] Harris remains close to his mother, Polly, and reportedly calls her every night, no matter where he is, and often discusses particular scenes from his work with her. He currently lives in South Florida with his long-term partner Pace Barnes, a publishing editor.
