Erik Larson (2007)

Erik Larson (born January 3, 1954) is an American journalist and author of nonfiction books. He has written a number of bestsellers,[1] such as The Devil in the White City (2003), about the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago and a series of murders by H. H. Holmes that were committed in the city around the time of the Fair; The Devil in the White City also won the 2004 Edgar Award in the Best Fact Crime category, among other awards.

Early life[edit]

Born in Brooklyn, Larson grew up in Freeport, Long Island, New York.[2]

He studied Russian history at the University of Pennsylvania and graduated summa cum laude in 1976. After a year off, he attended the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, graduating in 1978.[2][3] He was inspired to go into journalism after seeing the movie All the President's Men.[4]

Journalism[edit]

Larson's first newspaper job was with The Bucks County Courier Times in Levittown, Pennsylvania, where he wrote about murder, witches, environmental poisons, and other "equally pleasant" things. He later became a features writer for The Wall Street Journal and TIME magazine, where he is still a contributing writer. His magazine stories have appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, Harper's, and other publications.[4]

Books[edit]

Erik Larson talks about In The Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and An American Family in Hitler's Berlin on Bookbits radio.

Larson has also written a number of books, mostly historical nonfiction. In a 2016 interview with the Knoxville Mercury, Larson stated he does all of his own research, asking, "why should I let anybody else have that fun?" He also rejected the idea of trying to imagine or take factual liberties with scenes and conversations from the past, stating that in his work, "anything that appears in quote is something that came from a historical document." He included among his literary inspirations David McCullough, Barbara Tuchman, David Halberstam, and Walter Lord.[4]

Bibliography[edit]

Teaching and public speaking[edit]

Larson has taught non-fiction writing at San Francisco State University, the Johns Hopkins Writing Seminars, and the University of Oregon, and he has spoken to audiences from coast to coast.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

Larson and his wife have three daughters. They reside in New York City and maintain a home in Seattle, Washington.[3]

He has lived in Philadelphia, Bristol, Pennsylvania, San Francisco, and Baltimore.[citation needed]
