Search - List of Books by William Goyen

Charles William Goyen (April 24, 1915 — August 30, 1983) was an American author, editor, and teacher.

He was born in Trinity, Texas, and at the age of eight he moved with his family to Houston. Later, after teaching for one year at the University of Houston, he left to serve in the U.S. Navy during World War II.

Returning to the U.S. after five years in the service, he pursued his work outside of Houston. Goyen is often considered "a writer's writer," and though his work never achieved mainstream fame, his work is admired for its spirit and unusual style. The House of Breath, his first novel, has a cult following and remains in print to this day.

Goyen died of leukemia in Los Angeles in 1983, aged 68, shortly after the completion of his last novel. He was survived by his wife, the actress Doris Roberts.
