Jones, James

 

Born Nov. 6, 1921, in Robinson, 111. American writer. Served in the US Army in World War II.

Jones became famous for his antimilitaristic novel From Here to Eternity (1951; Russian translation, From Here and Into Eternity, 1969). Jones’ novel Some Came Running (1957) tells about front-line soldiers who return after the war alienated from their bourgeois surroundings. In Jones’ style, which was influenced by the prose of E. Hemingway and the soldier poetry of R. Kipling, the naturalistic element predominates.
