Happy birthday, John McPhee.

Nonfiction prose master and Pulitzer Prize winner John McPhee was born today in Princeton in 1931. A regular writer for the New Yorker and once a playwright on Robert Montgomery Presents, McPhee has more than 20 books to his credit; his latest is Uncommon Carriers (2006). He's also spawned something of a literary dynasty: several of his children are writers, including daughters Jenny and Martha.
