Oliver Broudy cut his teeth writing short stories, which have been published in a variety of literary journals. In 2005, after a five-year stint as an editor at The Paris Review, he began his career as a magazine journalist. His work has taken him to China, Afghanistan, New Zealand, and elsewhere. He has written about anarchy in Missouri, a kung fu master in Humboldt, and football in Dallas. In 2009, his dissection of a fatal car crash for Men’s Health was a finalist for the National Magazine Awards. Since then, he has begun to pursue more independent projects, including The Saint, which was voted a top-ten Single of 2011, and The Convert, which was voted a top-ten Single of 2012. Recently, he has focused on producing a live, hyperlocal magazine called Amherst Live. He is currently at work on a book.
