About the Author
Tony Hiss (New York, NY) was a staff writer at The New Yorker for more than 30 years. He has lectured around the world, and is currently a Visiting Scholar at New York University s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. In Motion marks his 13th book, following the award-winning The Experience of Place. His books have explored subjects as varied as train travel, the landscape of the Chicago region, and both the landscape and the future of New York City. The National Recreation and Park Association's National Literary Award praised Hiss for a lifetime of "spellbinding and poignant" writing about "how our environments, modes of travel, and other aspects of the American landscape affect our lives."
