Irwin Shaw Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Irwin Shaw (February 27, 1913 – May 16, 1984) was a prolific American playwright, screenwriter, novelist, and short-story author whose written works have sold more than 14 million copies. He is best known for his novels The Young Lions (1948) about the fate of three soldiers during World War II that was made into a film of the same name starring Marlon Brando, and Rich Man, Poor Man (1970) about the fate of three siblings after World War II that was made into a popular miniseries starring Nick Nolte. Though Shaw's work received widespread critical acclaim, the success of his commercial fiction ultimately diminished his literary reputation.
