Susan Faludi

Memoir Keynote

Susan Faludi is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and the author of several books, including Stiffed: The Betrayal of the American Man and Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction. Faludi's work has appeared in the New Yorker, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and the Nation, among other publications. Faludi won the Pulitzer Prize for explanatory journalism in 1991, for a Wall Street Journal article on the human costs of the leveraged buyout of Safeway. Faludi’s most recent book, the memoir In the Darkroom, has been called “rich, arresting and ultimately generous” by the New York Times. In it, she combines her own critical inquiries into gender with the personal story of her transgender father.
