Prof. Michael Norman
Michael Norman, the author of THESE GOOD MEN: Friendships Forged in War, a memoir published to critical acclaim in 1990, is a former reporter and columnist for The New York Times national, foreign and metropolitan desks. Norman was the inaugural writer for the following New York Times columns: “A Sense of Place”, a monthly column that explored the dislocations of modern life in one suburban town; “Lessons”, a national column on education; and “Our Towns”, a twice-weekly column on life outside New York City.
Norman’s work also includes major articles for various other national publications, including The New York Times Magazine, The Washington Post Magazine and GQ Magazine. His work has been syndicated both here and abroad. At the moment, he is co-writing a book with his wife, Dr. Elizabeth Norman, on the largest defeat in American military history: the battle for Bataan and Corregidor and its long, sad aftermath. The work will be published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux in 2006 or early 2007.
