Pat Frank is the pen name of the American novelist Harry Hart Frank (born 1909, died 1964). Frank's most well-known work is the post-apocalyptic novel Alas, Babylon, which has become a staple in high school classrooms. However, Alas, Babylon was not Frank's first work; this title belongs to the novel Mr. Adam, which presents a world where all men are rendered sterile.
Frank's career as a writer started long before he wrote Mr. Adam. At an early point in his life, he worked for newspaper agencies as well as government agencies, performing journalist and information brokering jobs.
He was awarded with the American Heritage Award in 1961.
