Dr. Barry Pollack grew up in Philadelphia and spent two years at the Air Force Academy before completing his B.S. degree in political science at Penn State University. After earning a Master's degree in broadcasting and film at Stanford, where he made several prize-winning documentary films, he was accepted as a writing-directing fellow at the new American Film Institute in Los Angeles. At age 24 he wrote and directed the successful 1972 blaxploitation film Cool Breeze, but after his next film, This is a Hijack, flopped, Pollack changed careers. In 1980 he graduated from University of Oklahoma Medical School. Since then he has been an emergency-room physician at a number of Southern California hospitals-for the last decade at Los Robles Regional Medical Center in Thousand Oaks, CA. Over the same decade, Pollack has penned hundreds of articles and columns (medical stories, biographies and travel pieces) for the Ventura County STAR newspapers. He was a medical advisor to the multiple Emmy-winning TV series St. Elsewhere and has also written episodes of Trapper John, M.D. and Hotel. Forty-Eight X is his first novel. -
