Erik Larson is the author of three bestsellers, including the book The Devil in the White City, an Edgar Award-winning account of the brilliant architect who led the construction of the 1893 Chicago World's Fair and the serial killer who built a house of horrors just blocks away from the fairgrounds. The Devil in the White City spent more than 3 years on the New York Times bestsellers list and was a finalist for the National Book Award. Larson's most recent book, In the Garden of Beasts, offers a chilling look at Adolph Hitler's first year in power. It was an instant bestseller and has remained atop the New York Times list of bestselling nonfiction since it was published in May 2011. Larson has also written for The Wall Street Journal, Harper's and The New Yorker, among many other distinguished publications.
