About the Author

Roy Lichtenstein (1923 - 1997) encouraged a broader understanding and experience of his art for contemporary artists of his time.

Melinda Camber Porter born in London and graduated from Oxford University with a First Class Honors degree in Modern Languages. She began her writing career in Paris as a cultural correspondent for The Times of London. French culture is the subject of her book Through Parisian Eyes (published by Oxford University Press), which the Boston Globe describes as "a particularly readable and brilliantly and uniquely compiled collection."
She interviewed many leading cultural figures in film and literature from Europe and American over her career. These included four Nobel Prize winners such as Saul Bellow and Gunter Grass, and many writers including Joyce Carol Oates, Joan Diddion, Roy Lichtenstein, Frances Sagan and film makers Michael Apted, Martin Scorsese and Wim Wenders, many others. Over fifty of Camber Porter's cultural interviews have audio recordings.
Her novel Badlands, a Book-of-the-Month Club selection, was set on South Dakota's Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and acclaimed by Louis Malle as "Better than a novel, it reads like a fierce poem, with a devastating effect on our self-esteem." and by Publishers Weekly as "a novel of startling, dreamlike lyricism."
Melinda Camber Porter leaves a prolific and creative legacy with thousands of paintings; over two hundred hours of audio and film interviews with global creative figures in the arts, film and literature; and her tens of thousands of pages of writings: novels, plays, essays, journalism and volumes of poetry. Her creative and spiritual works will be enjoyed for generations to come (
