About the author (1986)

Iris Rainer Dart's early writings included a collaboration on a script for the 60's television show That Girl. Her first novel, The Boys in the Mail Room (1980), was loosely based on the life of her first husband, concert promoter Steve Wolf. Her best known work, Beaches (1985), was the story of a life-long friendship between two women of vastly different backgrounds. In 1988 it was made into a successful film and inspired Dart to write a sequel, I'll Be There (1991).
