Search - List of Books by Karl Taro Greenfeld

Karl Taro Greenfeld (born 1964 in Kobe, Japan) is a journalist and author known primarily for his articles on life in modern Asia and both his fiction and non-fiction in The Paris Review.

The son of an American father and a Japanese mother, he grew up in Los Angeles and went to college in New York, graduating from Sarah Lawrence in 1987. A regular contributor to publications such as GQ and Vogue, Greenfeld was the managing editor of Tokyo Journal before becoming the editor of Time Asia from 2002 - 2004 and editor-at-large at Sports Illustrated from 2004 - 2007. He is the author of two books about Asia -- Days and Nights with Japan's Next Generation and Growing Up and Coming Down in the New Asia -- as well as an account of the breakout of the SARS virus, China Syndrome: The True Story of the 21st Century's First Great Epidemic.

He is the son of writers Josh Greenfeld and Fumiko Kometani, and his younger brother Noah was the subject of the elder Greenfeld's "Noah" trilogy of books (A Child Called Noah, A Place for Noah, and A Client Called Noah); these books also indirectly chronicle Greenfeld's childhood as well. In May 2009, Greenfeld published his own memoir of his years with Noah, "Boy Alone: A Brother's Memoir."

Karl was born in Kobe, Japan, has lived in Paris, New York, Hong Kong and Tokyo and currently lives in Pacific Palisades with his wife, Silka, and two daughters, Esmee and Lola.
