Stanley Cooperman once said, “I was born between the rollercoasters of Coney Island and the elongated tombstones of Manhattan, and have been trying to sort them out ever since.” New York not only formed this sense of conflict within him, it also gave him an education: he graduated from NYU with a BA in 1951 and later an MA in 1955. He went on to obtain a PhD from the University of Indiana in 1961. He taught at a number of universities, and even received a Fulbright Award to teach in Iran: “Whilst in Tehran, I introduced one of the chief benefits of Western civilisation to the city. I wrote a night-club column called ‘Tehran After Dark’ for the local English language newspaper. It was in this way that I developed my love for caviar and flamenco dancers.” As well as publishing several collections of poetry, he also wrote literary studies on Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and John Steinbeck. Mr Cooperman committed suicide in 1976, aged 47 years.
