The book received the American Bar Association’s Silver Gavel Award and the National Jewish Book Award. He is also the author of A Man’s World: A Gallery of Fighters, Creators, Actors, and Desperadoes, a collection of magazine articles drawn from his long career writing for GQ, Esquire, Los Angeles Magazine, The Atlanta Journal & Constitution Magazine, Time, and other publications. He is presently working on a history of NPR for Simon & Schuster. He was raised in Atlanta and educated at the University of Georgia and at Harvard, where he was a Nieman and a Shorenstein Fellow. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, designer Madeline Stuart.

Sandra Berman was the founding archivist of the Cleveland Jewish Archives at the Western Reserve Historical Society.  After moving to Atlanta, Berman became the founding archivist of the Joseph and Ida Pearle Cuba Archives for Southern Jewish History at the Breman Museum, which was then the Jewish Community Archives and operating out of a closet at the Atlanta Jewish Federation. During her 28-year tenure, Berman grew the archives into the largest repository for Jewish history in the region and co-curated multiple exhibitions at the Breman Museum.
