Richard Bach

Richard Bach (born 1936) is an American writer.

Author of Jonathan Livingston Seagull (1970), Illusions (1977), The Bridge Across Forever (1984), One (1989).

Bach's early experiences included being an Air Force reserve pilot and nearly all of his books revolve around flight in some way, from the early stories which are straightforwardly about flying aircraft to the later books in which flight is a complex philosophical metaphor. Bach had a huge success with Jonathan Livingston Seagull which has not been equalled by his later books: nevertheless his work remains popular with readers.
