Search - List of Books by Max Wilk

Max Wilk, is an American playwright, screenwriter and author of fiction and nonfiction books.

Formerly a resident of Ridgefield, Connecticut, he moved to Westport, Connecticut, where he now lives.

In the 1960s, he wrote the novelization of The Beatles' cartoon Yellow Submarine. His fiction includes Don't Raise the Bridge, Lower the River; the movie version starred Jerry Lewis and shifted the locale from "Green Haven" (based on Ridgefield) to London, England.

On the original bookjacket is the warning:

While the locale of this book is Connecticut, it has nothing of importance to say about Suburbia, Exurbia, the Exploding Metropolis, or the stifling wave of Middle Class Conformity which, it is augured, will soon engulf the whole of Fairfield County.


In the '90s, he published a coffee-table book tracing the origins of the musical Oklahoma! Later he wrote Schmucks with Underwoods--Conversations with Hollywood's Classic Screenwriters.

For decades Mr. Wilk was a dramaturge for playwrights at The Eugene O'Neill Theater Center's National Playwright's Conference under the leadership of Lloyd Richards.
