Categorization is odious. There is tremendous overlap among genres. These pigeonholes are offered only as a convenience.

Nice interview with photo at: http://www.powells.com/authors/juster.html


Juster wanted to be an architect from childhood on. His father was an architect, and Juster's brother became an architect as well. He served in the United States Navy before settling into his architectural career.
Juster wrote The Phantom Tollbooth (ISBN 0394815009) in the early 1960s while living in Brooklyn, New York. Jules Feiffer, a neighbor of Juster's, did the illustrations. Although Juster enjoyed writing, his architectural career remained his primary focus. He was also a teacher.
