Mitch Horowitz, Author, http://www.mitchhorowitz.com/

Mitch Horowitz is a writer and publisher of many years’ experience with a lifelong interest in man’s search for meaning. He is the editor-in-chief of Tarcher/Penguin in New York and the author of  Occult America (Bantam), which The Washington Post Book World called: “Fascinating…a serious, wide-ranging study of all the magical, mystical, and spiritual movements that have arisen and influenced American history in often-surprising ways.”

A widely known writer and speaker on the history and impact of alternative spirituality, he has appeared on CBS Sunday Morning, Dateline NBC, All Things Considered, Air America Radio, The History Channel, The Montel Williams Show, and Coast to Coast AM. He has written forThe Washington Post, U.S. News & World Report, Parabola, the Religion News Service, and the popular weblog BoingBoing.

Mitch Horowitz‘s Occult America is the winner of the PEN Oakland-Josephine Miles National Literary Award. “This book is a delightfully original tour through American history, as seen through the lives of men and women devoted to all manner of mysticism. Across these pages troop spiritualists, prophets, seers, psychics, numerologists, transcendentalists, theosophists, and historical figures from Mary Todd Lincoln to Marcus Garvey to Henry Wallace. Their stories are part of the deep-seated American tradition of searching for the new—a tradition that Occult America both explains and enriches.” — Stephen Kinzer, author of Overthrow: America’s Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq and All the Shah’s Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror
