Bill Deresiewicz is an award-winning essayist and critic. He’s a frequent speaker at high schools and colleges. His work has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, Harper’s, The American Scholar, and many other publications. He taught English at Yale and Columbia before becoming a full-time writer in 2008.
