Lawrence Wright is an American writer and screenwriter. He writes for “New York” magazine and “The New Yorker” magazine. He co-wrote the screenplay for the film “The Siege”, and is the author of six books including “The Looming Tower: A history of Al Qaeda”, and “Remembering Satan: A Tragic Case of Recovered Memory”.
Wright’s book “Remembering Satan”, was based on a series of articles that ran in The New Yorker about the Paul Ingram case. A quick bestseller, Wright’s latest book “The Looming Tower” is frequently referenced as an excellent piece of background reading on the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
