Adler is best known for penning the book-turned-movie The War of the Roses (1989), which starred Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner. After finding success in Latin America and Europe, the stage production of War of the Roses will debut on the North American theater circuit in 2013. Adler, 85, grew up in Brooklyn and received a degree in English literature from New York University.
He is the founder of the Jackson Hole Writers Conference in Wyoming and has written more than 30 novels, short story collections and screenplays.
