From the dustjacket of my latest book:
Gregg Easterbrook is the author of eleven books, including the New York Times bestseller The Progress Paradox. He has been a staff writer, national correspondent or contributing editor of The Atlantic for nearly 40 years. Easterbrook has written for the New Yorker, Science, Wired, Harvard Business Review, the Washington Monthly, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Los Angeles Times. He was a fellow in economics, then in government studies, at the Brookings Institution, and a fellow in international affairs at the Fulbright Foundation. In 2017 he was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
I was born in 1953 in Buffalo, New York, to parents who were naturalized Americans; both my parents were originally Canadian. My mother, Vimy Hoover Easterbrook, who worked as a teacher in the Buffalo public school system, died in 1976. My father, George, a retired dentist, passed away in 2012. I am a graduate of Colorado College in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
My brother Frank is a federal appeals court judge for the Seventh Circuit, and a professor of law at the University of Chicago. My brother Neil is a professor of English at Texas Christian University. My sister Nancy is a nurse in Knoxville, Tennessee.
My wife, Nan Kennelly, a graduate of Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, works for the Department of State; we’ve lived overseas in Pakistan and Belgium. Right now we live outside Washington, DC. We have three children: boys born in 1989 and 1995 and a girl born in 1990.
My hobby is the football column Tuesday Morning Quarterback, which over the years has appeared at Slate, ESPN, the Weekly Standard and the New York Times.
