Speaker Biography: Steven Millhauser won the 1997 Pulitzer Prize for fiction for "Martin Dressler," the story of a young entrepreneur in late-19th-century New York. His best-known short story may be "Eisenheim the Illusionist," about a magician in Vienna; it became the hit movie "The Illusionist" in 2006 starring Edward Norton. Millhauser is known for tales that blur the line between reality and fantasy. In the title story from his latest collection, "We Others: New and Selected Stories," Millhauser writes of a man who is dead but not quite gone.
