Don Carpenter
FameRank: 6

"Don Carpenter" was an American writer, best known as the author of Hard Rain Falling. He wrote numerous novels, novellas, short story/short stories and screenplays over the course of a 22-year career that took him from a childhood in Berkeley, California and the Pacific Northwest to the corridors of power and ego in Hollywood. A close observer of human frailty, his writing depicted marginal characters like Hustling/pool sharks, prisoners and drug dealers, as well as Business magnate/movie moguls and struggling actors. Although lauded by critics and fellow writers alike, Carpenter's novels and stories never reached a mass audience and he supported himself with extensive work for Hollywood. Facing a mounting series of debilitating illnesses, Don Carpenter committed suicide in 1995.
