Stephen McCauley is the American author of several novels, three of which have been adapted into film: one American and two French.

Life and career
McCauley was raised outside of Boston and went to public schools for his education. As an undergraduate, he attended the University of Vermont and then spent a year in France at the University of Nice.

McCauley worked a series of unrelated jobs including teaching yoga, working at a hotel, a kindergarten, and manning an ice cream stand. He worked as a travel agent for many years before moving to Brooklyn in the 1980s. There he attended adult learning centers to take some writing classes before enrolling in Columbia University's writing program. The writer Stephen Koch gave him the idea to begin work on his first novel.

That first novel, The Object of My Affection was published in 1987 and became a Hollywood film starring Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd. Both his second and fouth novels were adapted into French films: The Easy Way Out, released in 1992, became L'Art de la fugue and True Enough, published in 2001, became La Verite ou Presque.

McCauley's stories, articles and reviews have appeared in Gay Community News, Bay Windows, Boston Phoenix, New York Times Book Review, Vogue, House & Garden, Details, Vanity Fair, Harper's, and Travel and Leisure, among others.

McCauley is an alumnus of the Ragdale Foundation.

Today, McCauley serves as the Co-Director of the Creative Writing program at Brandeis University. He is a Professor of the Practice of English Fiction. (From Wikipedia. Retrieved 5/9/2018.)
