Before we reveal the answer to last week’s Name That Author, let’s have a recap of the clues.

1. I published one novel, and when I first submitted it to a publisher, I sent my ONLY copy. 

2. When I was 5, a major race riot happened just a few miles from my house.

3. I never lived on a plantation, but my forebears did.

4. I was one of the first authors to become interested in acquiring international copyright. I saw foreign editions of my most famous novels that weren’t generating any money for me and I “gave a damn.”

How did you do?
