Nathaniel Rich is the author of The Mayor's Tongue and Odds Against Tomorrow. His essays and short fiction have appeared in Harper's Magazine, The New York Review of Books, McSweeney's, and The New York Times Magazine. Born in New York City, he now lives in New Orleans.
“[Rich’s] prose is that of, in Saul Bellow’s words, ‘a first-class noticer’ . . . Any sentence from Rich is worth reading, any thought worth pondering.”
