Writers on writing peter spiegelman


Spiegelman grew up in Forest Hills, Queens and, creating his own home made superhero comic books, was interested in writing from a young age. He attended boarding school and studied English as an undergraduate at Vassar College, New York, winning the Beatrice Daw Brown prize for "a member of the senior class who has demonstrated excellence in the composition of poetry".

Spiegelman then "sobered up and realized I had to pay the rent" and worked for twenty years in the financial services industry; starting out as a computer programmer for a small consulting firm and ending up as a vice president of J.P. Morgan. He followed this by becoming a junior partner for The Frustum Group, a company that sold computer software to large financial institutions, until, in 2001, it was sold for "a "high eight-figure" sum" allowing him the financial freedom to return to writing. Speaking about his time on the trading floor, Spiegelman stated that "it's a great place to study dysfunctional egos and uncompromising greed - great for an aspiring novelist. Wall Street is such a 'noirish' place."

He currently lives in Ridgefield, Connecticut, with his wife Alice Wang, a managing director at J. P. Morgan.
