Michael Korn is from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He has degrees in piano performance and computer science.
He has lived in Louisiana all of his life and is grateful to be a part of this interesting state, which has had writers residing within such as Ernest Gaines, George Washington Cable, Robert Olen Butler, John Kennedy Toole, Walker Percy, Tennesee Williams, Lafcadio Hearn, Richard Ford, James Lee Burke, Kate Chopin, Lillian Hellman, Nelson Algren, William Faulkner(who lived in the French Quarter during Prohibition), Truman Capote and Robert Penn Warren. Louisiana has had its share of science fiction and horror authors that lived here as well: E. Hoffmann Price, Poppy Brite, Nancy A. Collins, Anne Rice, Sidney Williams, George A. Effinger, William S. Burroughs (well, ok, literati) (he lived in Algiers, across the river from New Orleans), etc... Every major writer in America and elsewhere has visited (and some stayed for some time in) New Orleans: Mark Twain, Herman Melville, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Charles Bukowski, Malcolm Lowry (he and his wife were editing a late draft of UNDER THE VOLCANO in a bar on St. Ann street in the French Quarter and got thrown out for their trouble), Oscar Wilde, Aldous Huxley, Walt Whitman, Jack Kerouac, Eugene O'Neill, Anita Loos, Eudora Welty, John Dos Passos, William Faulkner, O. Henry, Sherwood Anderson, H.P. Lovecraft, and many others...To see the details and even some street addresses of famous writers that lived in New Orleans, go here.
