His most recent book, a "riveting biography" (Boston Globe) of the famous photographer of American Indians, Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher: The Epic Life and Immortal Photographs of Edward S. Curtis, was named one of the best books of the year by Publishers Weekly and was awarded the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction. The Wall Street Journal said, "Egan fills his chronicle with bright turns of phrase and radiant descriptions, making both places and people come alive...A sweeping tale about two vanishing ways of life." His weekly online column for The New York Times, the popular "Opinionator," is consistently among the most read pieces on the New York Times site. (strongstuff)
