Family

Horowitz was born to a Jewish family in Forest Hills. His parents, Phil and Blanche Horowitz, were high school teachers. He taught English and she taught stenography.[3] Horowitz majored in English and received a BA from Columbia University in 1959 and a master's degree in English literature at University of California, Berkeley.

His parents were long-standing members of the Communist Party.[4][5] Horowitz recounted his estrangement from his parents and gradual shift to the political right in a series of retrospectives, culminating in 1996 in his autobiographical book Radical Son: A Generational Odyssey.
