About Richard Condon

Richard Thomas Condon was a satirical and thriller novelist best known for his conspiracy thrillers, such as The Manchurian Candidate.

After serving in the United States Merchant Marine, Condon rose to moderate success as a Hollywood publicist, ad writer, and Hollywood agent. In 1957, Condon began writing. While employed by United Artists as an ad writer, he complained that he was wasting time in Hollywood and wished to write a novel. Condon’s boss, Max E. Youngstein, deducted large amounts from his salary and fired him after a year, giving him the money he had deducted in the form of a Mexican bank account and the key to a house overlooking the ocean in Mexico. Youngstein told him to write a book. In 1959, he dedicated his second novel, The Manchurian Candidate, to Youngstein. This movie made him famous in 1962. In 1982, Przzi’s Honor was adapted into a successful film.
