Biographical Sketch

Robert Lipsyte was born January 16, 1938, in New York, NY. He became a sports writer and columnist for the New York Times newspaper. As a writer of young adult sports literature, he became part of what has come to be recognized as a revolution in the genre. Earlier sports novels tended to be predictable, action-oriented, and filled with one dimensional characters. Lipsyte transformed the sports novel into a realistic coming-of-age story. His characters are real people who have to contend with ordinary problems in areas of their lives other than sports. He has received numerous awards and honors for his work./ Biographical Sources: Something About the Author, Vols. 5, 68, 113 Children's Literature Review, Vol. 76
