Alfred Kessler, Born in New York City, B.S. – Fordham University, M.D. – Duke University, Residency in Neurosurgery – University of Chicago, Practice of Neurological Surgery. Painter and Writer in Paris, France since 1968.

“My primary goal in writing is to explore the ordinary individual, the reasons and mysteries as to why a person reacts as he or she does. I believe that action in our lives takes place mostly within ourselves and that our own personal, inner dramas are more important than externals – the major events of the day – over which we have little control.”

Also published “Property Values” in “Sheets”, an anthology of poetry and prose edited by L. Claire Kincannon.

Exhibitions: Alfred Kessler has had numerous gallery and salon exhibitions in Paris and Europe including a two year tour of paintings in Russia and other eastern countries. He also has made illustrations for various reviews as well as for theater programs and settings.
