Wallace Irwin

Wallace Irwin (March 15, 1875-February 14, 1959) was a prolific and extraordinarily wide-ranging American writer. Over the course of his long career, Irwin wrote humorous sketches, light verse, screenplays, short stories, novels, nautical lays, aphorisms, journalism, political satire, lyrics for Broadway musicals, and the libretto for an opera. With his The Julius Caesar Murder Case (1935), he created a lasting subgenre within detective fiction, the mystery novel set in antiquity . His posthumous reputation consists primarily in continued appreciation of his comic verse and in the notoriety of his virulence as an -equal-opportunity bigot- who took swipes at African-Americans, Jews, gays, Greeks, the English, and short people and, most frequently, Asians and Asian-Americans
