The Author

Amy Waldman was a city desk reporter for The New York Times and was in New York City on 9/11. She helped cover the response to the attack, both in the city and later internationally as the paper's co–bureau chief for south Asia. She has also been a journalist for the Washington Post, Washington Monthly, and The Atlantic.

She was the recipient of a Distinguished Feature Writing award from the New York Newspaper Publishers' Association, the Front Page award from the Newswomen's Club of New York, and the Overseas Press Club award for the best business reporting in newspapers.

Waldman wrote The Submission, her first novel, to explore how America and the world have changed in the aftermath of 9/11. She has also published short stories in Boston Review and The Atlantic, and her work has been anthologized in The Best American Non-Required Reading 2010.
