Daniel Akst

Daniel Akst has written for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, Slate, and many other publications. His previous books include Wonder Boy, which chronicled the wondrous financial fraud he had a hand in exposing, and the novels St Burl's Obituary (a PEN/Faulkner finalist) and The Webster Chronicle. He lives with his wife and sons in New York's bucolic Hudson Valley, generally a good place to hide from temptation.
