John Phillips Marquand was an American writer. Originally best known for his Mr. Moto spy stories, he achieved popular success and critical respect for his satirical novels, winning a Pulitzer Prize for The Late George Apley in 1938. One of his abiding themes was the confining nature of life in America's upper class and among those who aspired to join it. Marquand treated those whose lives were bound by these unwritten codes with a characteristic mix of respect and satire. By the mid-1930s he was a prolific and successful writer of fiction for slick magazines like the Saturday Evening Post Marquand's 1951 novel, Melville Goodwin, USA, was unrecognizable in the 1957 motion picture A Top-Secret Affair. John Phillips Marquand, Jr. (1924-'95) followed in his father's footsteps, using the pseudonym John Phillips, with the 1953 novel The Second Happiest Day. He was born on November 10, 1893 and died on July 16, 1960.
