David Guterson

David is the author of a volume of poetry, two nonfiction books, two collections of short stories and five novels, most notably Snow Falling On Cedars, a story of the Japanese-American internment during World War II set on a fictional version of Bainbridge Island. Snow Falling On Cedars won the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction and was adapted into a feature film in 1999.  

A Seattle native, David taught at Bainbridge High School for ten years, writing in the early morning hours. The smash success of his debut novel allowed him to write full-time. Married and a father of five, Guterson continues to make his home on Bainbridge Island, where he co-founded the writing organization Field's End.  

"My work comes from inner disturbances, from seeing injustices and accidents and how they affect people's lives in a tragic way." -- From a 1996 BookPage interview
