Lev Grossman

Lev Grossman is a senior writer at Time Magazine as both the book critic and lead technology writer. He's also a bestselling author himself. Drawing on his own expertise and extensive conversations with major cultural figures, Grossman brings a uniquely qualified, humanistic eye to the complex and unprecedented ways in which technology and culture are merging.

Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Stephenie Meyer, J.K. Rowling, and Jonathan Franzen. Lev Grossman's talked in-depth with them all-- and many others. His book, The Magicians earned a rare combination of popular and critical acclaim -- it debuted at #8 on the New York Times bestseller list and was one of the New Yorker's best books of 2009. The sequel, The Magician King, picks up where The Magicians left off and has also become a New York Times bestseller. NPR called it "triumphant" -- "a spellbinding stereograph, a literary adventure novel that is also about a privilege, power and the limits of being human."

Grossman's award-winning journalism has also appeared in the Times, the Village Voice, Entertainment Weekly, Salon, Wired, The Believer and the Wall Street Journal, among many others, and he is a frequent guest on NPR. Grossman has degrees in comparative literature from Harvard and Yale. He lives in Brooklyn, NY.
