April 2011

NY, NY – “I am now at work on a project entitled Train: A Biography to be published by Viking/Penguin. My previous books include The Heartless Stone(St. Martin’s Press), named a Notable Book of 2006 by the American Library Association and Uranium: War, Energy and the Rock That Shaped the World (Viking/Penguin) named a Best Book by Library Journal, as well as a Best Science Book of 2009 by New Scientist magazine. I was a guest on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart last April in connection with this book.
In addition, I co-wrote An Ordinary Man (Viking/Penguin), the autobiography of Paul Rusesabagina, whose story was also recounted in the film Hotel Rwanda. This book was a New York Times bestseller in hardcover and paperback, and has been translated into thirteen languages. I have also delivered lectures on ethics and the craft of writing at Stanford University, Ohio University, Penn, UCLA, Colgate and the University of Arizona.”
