Meet the Author

Salvador Dali once called him the stupidest man in the world; Cary Grant described him as the smartest. New York Times bestselling author Robert Wernick is certainly talented. He has penned more than a dozen books and has contributed to a host of magazines, ranging from Vanity Fair to Life. His topics are as varied as the birth of town planning in the Mesolithic Age to a soul-baring Ferris-wheel ride with Marilyn Monroe to a climb up Mount Sinai. He has made his in Manhattan, Algiers, a ranch in the Nevada desert, San Francisco, the Basque coast, the Golden Isles of Georgia, and, most recently, the 14th Arrondissement of Paris.
