Adam Gopnik, a writer, essayist and commentator, is primarily known for his work published by “The New Yorker”, for which he has written since 1986.
In 1995, “The New Yorker” dispatched him to Paris to write the “Paris Journals”, in which he described life in the City of Light. These essays were later collected and published by Random House in “Paris to the Moon”, after Gopnik returned to New York City in 2000. Since then, he has continued to write for “The New Yorker” on a wide variety of subjects.
Gopnik’s work has been honored with three National Magazine Awards for Essay and Criticism and a George Polk Award for Magazine Reporting, and his entry on the culture of the United States is featured in the Encyclopædia Britannica.
