About the Author

Robert Cormier, originally a journalist, wrote for young adults for many years. His work is known for its devastating truthfulness. He has achieved success on both sides of the Atlantic. Robert Cormier lived most of his life in Massachusetts; he died in 2000.


The Chocolate War is uncompromising and unsentimental. It is doubtful, and finally irrelevant, whether Mr Cormier was writing for adolescents or for adults, any more than William Golding was concerned with a specific audience as he wrote Lord of the Flies, with which this novel stands comparison TES Getting inside the souls of adolescents seems to be Cormier's particular gift Publishing Weekly
