About Me

I'm a writer. l like rock-climbing, gourmet cooking, and yoga. I speak six languages and have a head full of long, thick, jet black hair. No, wait--hair--yoga--urdu--cooking--rocks--that's all somebody else. I'm just a writer. I've been an editor at Spy, Esquire, Time, and Playboy, and I wrote the novels The Coup and Mr. Stupid Goes to Washington, and otherwise I'm as ordinary as a cheeseburger.
