With his wife, Sheryl WuDunn, he has written four best-selling books, including the No. 1 New York Times best-seller "Half the Sky." Kristof and WuDunn were the first married couple to win a Pulitzer for journalism, for their coverage of the Tiananmen Square democracy movement in China and the massacre that followed. Kristof later won a second for his columns from Darfur. Kristof and WuDunn live in the New York area with their three children.
