One of the publishing events of 2014, the trilogy garnered wide-spread critical acclaim, was optioned by Paramount Pictures, and made more than thirty year’s best lists, including  Entertainment Weekly’s top 10. His nonfiction appears in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, the Guardian, and the Atlantic.com.
