Erika Ostrovsky (born May 30, 1926), author of Céline and his Vision (1967), was born in Vienna and educated mainly in America.

Her interest in Louis-Ferdinand Céline stemmed from a 3-year stay in France, where she studied at the Alliance Française and the Sorbonne. She was Assistant Professor of French at New York University. She has been active in the discovery, identification, and acquisition of important unpublished Céline manuscripts for the New York University Libraries. Kurt Vonnegut refers to Céline and his Vision in his book Slaughterhouse Five (1969).
