It feels like I’ve been a journalist forever. I’ve done the daily journalism thing with The New York Times. I’ve written long-form journalism for everyone from The New York Times Magazine to Wired to Newsweek, Mother Jones, and the American Bar Association Journal. I’ve written a couple of e-books and also five books, including most recently, KATRINA: After the Flood.

“A master journalist’s fascinating chronicle of the Harold Washington mayorality.”
“Exquisitely readable…One of the best books on new technology…laugh-out-loud funny.”
