Chester Himes /The Long Climb A prison term for robbery at 19 years old was the turning point for famous novelist Chester Himes. While in prison, Himes decided to be a writer. When the national magazine Esquire printed one of his stories on his life behind bars, he appeared headed for national acclaim. But Himes' aim for national recognition after release from prison fell short, despite having major publishing deals and a growing national audience. This dilemma made him decide to leave the US for Europe. After a long climb in pursuit of literary success, Himes finally won fame in Europe and with it came financial security for his action-packed detective stories. This finally resulted in acclaim in the US as well and he signed major film production deals with Hollywood studios to produce movies based on his successful novels.
