Erik Larson

 

"The power of books? For me it’s very simple. Books taught me to write, and for that I am forever in their debt."

 

Erik Larson is the author of five New York Times bestsellers, most recently Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania, which hit #1 on the Times list soon after launch. His previous book was In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler’s Berlin, which also hit #1 and remained on the printed list for 35 weeks. As a paperback, Beasts lingered on the list for 53 weeks, and spent 15 of them in the #1 spot. Movie rights were optioned by Universal Studios and Tom Hanks’ Playtone. Erik’s book The Devil in the White City stayed on the Times‘ hardcover and paperback lists for a combined total of over five years. It won an Edgar Award for nonfiction crime writing and was a finalist for a National Book Award; the option to make a movie of the book was acquired in November 2010 by Leonardo DiCaprio. In August, 2015, DiCaprio formed a new alliance to make the film, in which Martin Scorsese will direct, and Billy Ray will write the screenplay; Paramount will be the backing studio.
