a journalist and a novelist.He was born on March 27, 1910 and died July 1, 2008.

 As a writer, he not only writes many plays but also adapts his stage plays into films.

Steel Magnolias is his first play, which was inspired by his younger sister, Susan,

who died of complications from diabetes. The events in the play are based on his family life.

The play impressed Kyle Renick at the off-off-Broadway WPA Theater enough to perform it.

From then on, it has attracted lots of attention.

Finally, Steel Magnolias was put on the screen. Robert Harling adapted his piece into the screenplay.

 

Steel Magnolias has been translated into many languages around the world.

Steel Magnolias is just one of his masterpieces. In Harling’s works, he is especially great at transferring

the trivial of others’ life into interesting stories. His working experiences provide him ideas to his novels

and playwrights. His recent works include Soapdish(1991), The First Wives Club (1996),

 Laws of Attraction (2004),and so on.
