Lawrence Osborne has written for The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, and other publications, and is the author of several books, including The Accidental Connoisseur. Born in England, he lives in New York.
"[Osborne] grabs the bull by the horns . . . Through the most surreal environments (the fabricated islands of Dubai, the medical resorts of Thailand) he is funny, intelligent, insightful and honest." --Max Watman, The New York Times Book Review
