Kurt Andersen

Kurt Andersen co-founded and until 1993 edited the ground-breaking and influential Spy magazine in America. He was until 1996 editor-in-chief of New York magazine, and this spring co-founded, an internet publication covering the film, television, media, book and music industries. From 1996 through 1999 he wrote a column, 'The Culture Industry', for the New Yorker. Andersen began his career in journalism at Time magazine, where he was first an award-winning writer on politics and criminal justice and then for eight years the magazine's architecture and design critic. He has also produced television programmes, and co-wrote a satirical stage revue that had long runs in New York and Los Angeles. TURN OF THE CENTURY, a critically acclaimed bestseller, is his first novel. He is currently writing a screenplay based on the book, which Curtis Hanson (L.A. Confidential, Wonder Boys) plans to direct. Andersen lives with his wife and daughters in New York City.
