James Wolcott

Born and raised in Maryland, James Wolcott is a columnist for Vanity Fair and has written for the New Republic, the London Review of Books, Bookforum, and many other publications still treading above water. He also has a blog at the Vanity Fair website, where he keeps tabs on politics, “America's Next Top Model,” the dance scene, books, birding, and generally makes a nuisance of himself—but in a fun, caring way.
