Scott Anderson is a war correspondent and novelist who has covered foreign conflicts on five continents over the past two decades. A contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine, his work has also appeared in Vanity Fair, Esquire, Harper’s, Outside, Men’s Journal and many other publications. Along with his journalism, he is the author of four non-fiction books, including The Man Who Tried to Save the World and, with his brother and fellow journalist Jon Lee Anderson, Inside The League and War Zones.
His first novel, Triage, was translated into eight languages, and his second novel, Moonlight Hotel was recently published by Doubleday.
A film inspired by his misadventures in Bosnia, in which he and several journalist friends were mistaken for a CIA hit squad, was made into The Hunting Party starring Richard Gere and Terrence Howard.
Scott is currently co-writing a screenplay with director Scott Elliott, under contract for Kennedy/Marshall Productions, based on his article, “Bringing It All Home,” (New York Times Magazine, May 29, 2006) about a Pennsylvania National Guard unit returning home from a tour in Iraq. He has also been contracted to write three screenplays based on his books or articles.
