James Carroll is the author of eleven novels and seven works of nonfiction, including the National Book Award winning An American Requiem, the New York Times bestselling Constantine’s Sword, now an acclaimed documentary, and House of War, which won the first PEN-Galbraith Award. His most recent novel is Warburg in Rome (“his most splendid work of fiction to date” –Alan Cheuse, NPR). His most recent work of nonfiction is Christ Actually: The Son of God for the Secular Age (“at once stunningly original and strangely familiar, a testament to the power of a critical, creative faith.” –Boston Globe.) He is the author of the Foreword to War No More: Three Centuries of American Antiwar and Peace Writing (Library of America, 2016). His new novel, The Cloister, will be published in 2017 by Nan A. Talese / Doubleday. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences. He lives in Boston with his wife, the novelist Alexandra Marshall.
