Since 1971 Tony Connor has lived partly in Middletown, Connecticut where he was a professor of English at Wesleyan University. His plays have been performed on both sides of the Atlantic. He now divides his time between Middletown and London.
'His work is both original and entertaining... Connor does not simply report events. He vividly recreates them, shaping each scene with the skill and care of a novelist... his work remains clear-headed, intelligent and immensely readable.'Dana Gioia on 'New And Selected Poems' (1982) in The Hudson Review
