 Strauss.JPG Darin Strauss is the international bestselling author of the New York Times Notable books Chang and Eng and The Real McCoy. Also a screenwriter, he is adapting Chang and Eng with Gary Oldman for Disney. The recipient of a 2006 Guggenheim Fellowship in fiction writing, he is a Clinical Associate Professor at NYU’s Creative Writing Program. His new book, More Than It Hurts You, came out this summer. Called by GQ “THE hot book of the summer,” the national bestseller has been widely praised. “If you don't belong to a book club, Darin Strauss's bitter and brilliant new book is reason enough to start one,” wrote the Washington Post. For the novel's 22-city book tour, Darin blogged three times a week about his adventures on the road for Newsweek.
