Born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1908, Harry Kemelman created perhaps the most famous of religious sleuths: Rabbi David Small. After having received a BA in English Literature and a MA at Harvard in English philology, he taught in a number of schools before WW2. After, Kemelman worked as wage administrator for the Army Transportation Corps in Boston, and subsequently for the War Assets Administration. His writing career began with short stories for Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine. The Rabbi Small series began in 1964. Friday the Rabbi Slept Late was a bestseller and won Kemelman an Edgar for best first novel in 1965. Kemelman died in 1996.
