Product description

Review

“Craig Claiborne was the greatest influence of my professional life in America. Knowledgeable, dedicated, and driven, he was determined to better American eating habits. As Thomas McNamee nicely portrays in The Man Who Changed the Way We Eat, Claiborne's impact on the culinary revolution of the last forty years cannot be ignored or overstated.”
—Jacques Pépin

About the Author

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I was born in Memphis, Tennessee, and grew up there and in New York City. I studied writing at Yale under the tutelage of Robert Penn Warren.

I am the author of The Grizzly Bear (1984); Nature First: Keeping Our Wild Places and Wild Creatures Wild (1987); A Story of Deep Delight (1990); The Return of the Wolf to Yellowstone (1997), Alice Waters and Chez Panisse: The Romantic, Impractical, Often Eccentric, Ultimately Brilliant Making of a Food Revolution 2007), The Man Who Changed the Way We Eat: Craig Claiborne and the American Food Renaissance (2012), The Killing of Wolf Number Ten (2014), and, my latest, THE INNER LIFE OF CATS: THE SCIENCE AND SECRETS OF OUR MYSTERIOUS FELINE COMPANIONS (2017).

My essays, poems, and natural history writing have been published in Audubon, The New Yorker, Life, Natural History, High Country News, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Saveur, and a number of literary journals. I wrote the documentary film Alexander Calder, which was broadcast on the PBS 'American Masters' series and received both a George W. Peabody Award and an Emmy. Many of my book reviews have appeared The New York Times Book Review.

After twenty-three years in New York City and five in rural Montana, I have lived in San Francisco since 1998--albeit with frequent returns to New York and as much of every summer as possible in Montana.
