Norman Sherry

Norman Sherry FRSL (6 July 1925 – 19 October 2016) was an English novelist, biographer, and educator who was most well known for his three-volume biography of the British novelist Graham Greene. He was professor of English literature at Lancaster University. During World War Two, he served in Burma.

Sherry was born in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, the younger twin (by eleven minutes) of Alan. He was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. He also wrote on Joseph Conrad, Charlotte and Emily Brontë, and Jane Austen. His ''Life of Graham Greene'' was praised by David Lodge for being "a remarkable and heroic achievement" that he predicted would prove "the definitive biography of record" of Greene.

From 1983, Sherry held the post of Mitchell Distinguished Professor of Literature at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas.

He was married three times: first to the children's novelist Sylvia Sherry, then to Carmen Flores (with whom he had a son and a daughter), and finally to Pat Villalon. Sherry died on 19 October 2016 at the age of 91.
