Lawrence Eisenberg is the author of two novels: Norman's Present, a romantic fantasy that travels between the1970s and the 1930s ; and "Temptation," about the seductive powers of Hollywood glamour and money. He has also written the biography, "Jack Nicholson: The Search For a Superstar." Since the mid-1970s he's been a regular contributor to many national magazines.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, Eisenberg received a B.A. from Brooklyn College and an M.A. from Columbia University. Though he eventually crossed the big bridge to Manhattan , his early memories are so strong that he is working on an autobiography, "You Can Take the Boy Out of Flatbush." It details his childhood as part of a loving, often aggravating family, many of whose members never realized how funny they were.
Eisenberg and his wife, Barbara, have two children, three grandchildren and Siamese cat brothers, Murray and Simon.
