William Giraldi

William Giraldi is a critically acclaimed author and editor whose criticism has appeared in publications including the New York Times, Oxford American, Wall Street Journal, Poets & Writers, The Daily Beast, Virginia Quarterly, and the New Criterion. He is the author of two novels, Busy Monsters and Hold the Dark, and currently serves as the fiction editor for AGNI at Boston University and as a contributing editor at the New Republic. His memoir, The Hero’s Body, is an unflinching examination of the simultaneous fragility and enforced strength of American masculinity that Kirkus calls a “hearty, bittersweet familial chronicle” in a starred review.
