Kurth, Peter Authors Literature
Peter Kurth was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1953. He is a graduate of the University of Vermont, where he earned departmental honors in English and Theatre. His first book, Anastasia: The Riddle of Anna Anderson (Little, Brown 1983), was an international bestseller and made into an NBC television miniseries. Kurths biography of anti-fascist journalist Dorothy Thompson, American Cassandra, also published by Little, Brown, was a bestseller in trade paperback and won the Frank Luther Mott-Kappa Tau Alpha Research Award as the best book about American journalism of 1990. In 1989 Kurth was diagnosed with HIV infection, an event that unavoidably changed his life and altered the direction of his writing. His commentary on AIDS issues has been heard on National Public Radio, and in 1997 he became "Lazarus" columnist for POZ magazine.
