About This Episode
I’m the author of eight books on subjects ranging from a biography of Christopher Isherwood (awarded the James Tait Black Memorial Book Prize in 1979) to Terrorized: How the War on Terror Affected American Culture and Society (2011). My novel Money Matters (2019) was a finalist for the American Fiction Awards in the Best New Fiction category. Born in England, I taught at the University of London, and, since emigrating, at four universities in Southern California. My latest novel, Dangerous Conjectures, was published on 3/25/2021. I am married and live in Venice, California.
