Author: Irving Wallace. These are the major actors in Irving Wallace’s exciting, story of the Nobel Prize, five men and a woman elected to receive the supreme palm of mankind’s honours, to be f?ted as almost superhuman beings, their achievements to be discussed and applauded, their private lives to be spotlighted in the blinding glare of international publicity.

Irving Wallace wrote sixteen novels and seventeen nonfiction titles during his long career. There is no finesse in the writing. Together his books sold more than 250,000,000 copies around the world; many became fixtures on the bestseller lists. This could have been an interesting novel based on the plot, but instead it is merely long.

Irving Wallace (March 19, 1916 – June 29, 1990) was an American best-selling author and screenwriter. Wallace was born in Chicago, Illinois, to Bessie Liss and Alexander Wallace (an Americanized version of the original family name of Wallechinsky). The family was Jewish and originally from Russia. Wallace was named after his maternal grandfather, a bookkeeper and Talmudic scholar of Narewka.

Novelist Andrew Craig has not been sober in a very long time.

Historical fiction books revealing the past. Historical fiction is here to thrill.

Irving Wallace The Prize. Dedicated to my parents Bessie and Alex Wallace.

She unhooked her nylon stockings and rolled them off, and then took off her suspender belt and threw it on the chair. ed that was foolish, then went to the bathtub and turned the knobs until the shower was going full force. Next, she undid her brassière, and pulled off her pants and dropped both on the wooden stool. Starting for the bathtub, she saw herself in the full-length mirror of the partially open door

Novelist Andrew Craig has not been sober in a very long time. Then, when he is awarded the Nobel Prize in literature for his novel, "The Perfect State," a historical jab at communism, he heads for Stockholm, hoping to find a reason to live, and to write.

Novelist Andrew Craig has not been sober in a very long time. After losing his wife in an auto accident he believes to have been his own fault, he turned to the bottle, and to his sister-in-law, Leah, who acts as his caretaker and live-in nurse. Then, when he is awarded the Nobel Prize in literature for his novel, "The Perfect State," a historical jab at communism, he heads for Stockholm, hoping to find a reason to live, and to write. The other laureates have their own problems, a heart surgeon who believes that sharing his award with an Italian colleague robs him of his glory, a married couple awarded the prize in medicine in the middle of a serious marital crisis, and others - including Max Stratman, whose heart isn't really up to the trip, but who needs the prize money to provide for niece, Emily. This novel delves into the lives, loves, dreams and nightmares of these characters, and others, building a panoramic view of the Nobel Prize, life in Stockholm, and the state of world politics in the years following World War II. It is rich and compelling, driving the reader from the pits of despair to the heights of inspiration. A wonderful novel by one of America's finest novelists. The Prize was made into a movie starring Paul Newman.
This may be the very best of Irving Wallace's wonderful novels! The story is just a timely one, whether you read it when it first came out or just now. He develops the characters so beautifully, I could picture every single one of them. And as the story develops, there is surprise after surprise. Just a fabulous book and one I wholeheartedly recommend.
On the cover IW tells us that the book has taken over 15 years and at least one trip to sweden to accomplish. You just simply have to admire the ambition to tell us such a complete story. In this ambition he takes on the herritage of older storytelling (and also educating) authors. The plot is simple; we follow the nobelwinners of one year from the time they are chosen too the time they leave Stockholm with their checks. In the time inbetwen we get an indepth analysis of the minds and psychological functions of people who are alcoholics, suffer from low self esteem and so om. Also in his pick of personalities IW demonstrates that the goal is to educate the readers, this time moraly. the book is well woth reading both for its facts on the nobel prize, the gossip around the nobel prize and its analysis of different aspects of the meaning of life and how to do it.
It was a fascinating and thrilling experience to read this book. Wallace certainly had great insights and a wealth of knowledge. My impression after reading this book is that Nobel prize winners are not saints not super human beings but just like you and me with hopes fears and human problems but somehow, by luck, their achievements had turned out to be unique and acclaimed.
I should have read the appendix to "Writing One Novel"; what a waste of time. The whole mishmosh is, for something that took 16 years to conceive and write, cheesy, needlessly complex, and oversexed. The aforementioned tome gives many of the juicy Nobel Prize digs without having to sit through the other 1,000 pages.

Be glad it's out of print, but be sure to catch "Writing One Novel" if you ever even dreamed of being a writer.
