More About the Author

I write. It's as simple as that. And as complicated as the answer to the question "What do you write?" It's like this...

As a magazine journalist, I've been a contributing editor for Vanity Fair, New York and Architectural Digest, and a contributor to The New Yorker & New York Times.

As an author, my books include Airborne: The Triumph and Struggle of Michael Jordan; Highly Confident: The Crime and Punishment of Michael Milken; Pre-Pop Warhol and The Other Guy Blinked (with Roger Enrico). I helped Twyla Tharp on The Collaborative Habit. Most recent book: HeadButler.com: The 100 Essentials.

On the Web, I co-founded Bookreporter.com. From 1997 to 2003, I was Editorial Director of America Online. In 2004, I launched HeadButler.com, a cultural concierge site that focuses on the best -- not just the newest -- books, music, movies and the occasional product.

Format: Hardcover
On June 6, 2000, The National D-Day Museum will open its doors in New Orleans, LA. It will be the only Museum in the U.S. dedicated to telling the stories of the amphibious invasions or "D-Days" of World War II. The royalties and earnings frm Now You Know are going to be dedicated to this Museum
The stories told in Now You Know will be mirrored in the Museum. Ordinary People who did the extraordinary. They came not to conquer, but to liberate, not to loot or destroy but to bring life and freedom.
Now You Know has helped me realize the debt that we owe that generation...a debt they never tried to collect. It has also helped me realize the opportunity I lost when my father died. A chance to say thanks.
Thanks.

"Now You Know" is a first rate little hard-bound book concerning viewers' reactions to the movie "Saving Private Ryan." It is clearly a labor of love and all profits are being donated to the National D-Day Museum. Anyone who saw the movie and loved it as I did will want this book. The viewers' express their observations with heart-felt emotion and insight. It would be rare to find something like this anywhere else.

When we created the 'Saving Private Ryan' site on AOL (AOL Keyword: Saving Private Ryan) last summer, all we knew is that this was not like other movies --- after you saw it, you HAD to share what you felt. Almost 30,000 members did just that on our message boards. We've chosen 100+ favorites for this book. It's a testimonial to the film, to our veterans --- and, not least, to the AOL community. If you read it, better have Kleenex handy. And know that all royalties are going to veterans' charities.

By Michael Kuhlmorgen on November 9, 1999
Format: Hardcover
'Now You Know' pretty much sums up the content of this book and the epic motion picture that inspired it. Every page is a human story, a story of everyday people changed by the unspeakable horror of war. One cannot help but be moved by the sheer honesty of the reactions evoked by this film. With the royalties going to the National D-Day Museum let us hope that the messages of this film and book continue to be remembered, for the sake of our future, and for the people who gave their lives for our freedom...

I teach a film history class and Saving Private Ryan is one of the films we watch and discuss. This collection of letters is very moving. The variety of reactions and emotions is very moving. The letters were impressive and they fit in well while teaching the film. If you teach a film class or plan to use Saving Private Ryan in the classroom I highly recommend this collection to supplement your teaching.
