Michael Lewis, author of Liar’s Poker, Moneyball and
The Big Short, Speaks on wednesday
Journalist and best-selling author Michael Lewis is much in the news
these days. One of the
most popular movies in
America, Moneyball, is
based on his book; and
his latest work of nonfiction, Boomerang: Travels
in the Third World,
explores an extraordinarily timely topic:
European sovereign debt.
Lewis will deliver the Derek
Foundation Lecture Series on
Wednesday morning, from 9:15-
A shrewd observer of politics,
finance and the American scene,
Lewis combines keen insight with
his signature wit, making him one
of today’s leading social commenta-
tors. Lewis is also a regular con-
tributor to The New York Times
Magazine, Vanity Fair, Slate and
Lewis’ book, The Big Short:
Inside the Doomsday Machine
(2010), is a darkly
of how the event
that was considered
fall of the American
occurred. He proves
that truth really is
stranger than fiction
with a razor-sharp
analysis of the heroes
and villains that
drove America’s economy over-
Lewis first made a name for
himself in 1989 with the chart-top-ping Liar’s Poker: Rising Through
the Wreckage of Wall Street, an
inside look at his career as a bond
trader that best-selling author Tom
Wolfe called “the funniest book
on Wall Street I’ve ever read,” and
earned Lewis the label of “America’s
poet laureate of capital” from The
Los Angeles Times.
Liar’s Poker spent 62 weeks
on The New York Times Best-
Seller List and remains one of the
signature books of the 1980s. Lewis
traversed the 1980s’ get-rich-quick
jungle with The Money Culture
(1992); chronicled the 1996 presi-
dential campaign in Losers: The
Road to Everyplace but the White
House; crafted a 20-week New
York Times Best-Seller in 2001
with The New, New Thing (“The
book that does for Silicon Valley
what Liar’s Poker did for Wall
Street”); and explored the Internet
boom in Next: The Future Just
