freelance journalist, contributing writer for NY Times Magazine since 1988; previously staff writer for The New Yorker; NY is the background of several of his books (which explains my interest for him); his recent writing focuses on politics and international affairs - including profiles of Obama, Gore, and McCain, along with a book on Kofi Annan and the U.N. (The Best Intentions: Kofi Annan and the UN in the Era of American World Power, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2006).

I have ordered one of his books just today and I am waiting for it to come: a history of Times Square (The Devil's Playground: A Century of Pleasure and Profit in Times Square, Random House, 2004)
