The library hosts a conversation with Michael Cannell, about his new book Incendiary: The Psychiatrist, The Mad Bomber and the Invention of Criminal Profiling.
“Long before the specter of terrorism haunted the public imagination, a serial bomber stalked the streets of 1950s New York. The race to catch him would give birth to a new science called criminal profiling.”
Michael is the author of three non-fiction books, most recently Incendiary: The Psychiatrist, the Mad Bomber and the Invention of Criminal Profiling (St. Martin’s Press). The Limit: Life and Death on the 1961 Grand Prix Circuit (The Twelve) was published in 2012. The Sundance Channel/AMC has optioned The Limit to be made into a television series. I.M. Pei: Mandarin of Modernism(Crown) was published in 1995. Michael was editor of the New York Times House & Home section for seven years. He has written for The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Sports Illustrated and many other publications. He lives in New York City.
