Writer, The New Yorker Magazine
The best writers take a piece of life and describe it as if you were touching or tasting it yourself. Adam Gopnik is one writer who demonstrates the small stuff best. He’s been a staff writer for the New Yorker Magazine since 1986, and his books include Paris to the Moon, about his years living in Paris, and Through the Children’s Gate, about life in New York City with his wife and two children.
Jessica talks to Adam about his writing process, and how he built a career as one of the country’s leading essayists, from scratch.
