Robert Lamb grew up in Georgia and was graduated from the University of Georgia. Following a career in journalism, he taught writing at the University of South Carolina for 20 years.
His first novel, Striking Out, was nominated for the PEN/Hemingway Award.
His second novel, Atlanta Blues, was a Southern Book Critics Circle Selection and was cited in a year-end roundup of new books as "one of the three best novels of the year by a Southern writer - and maybe the best."
His third novel, A Majority of One, is about a clash between religion and the U.S. Constitution over book-banning in public schools.
His latest book, Six of One, Half Dozen of Another (Stories & Poems + 1), features works representing a lifetime of writing, with an afterword on the origins of the poems and stories, one of which, "R.I.P.," was a winner in the 2009 South Carolina Fiction Project.
