David Ignatius David R. Ignatius, was born May 26, 1950 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.Ignatius attended Harvard College, from which he graduated magna cum laude in 1973. Ignatius was awarded a Frank Knox Fellowship from Harvard University and studied at Kings College, Cambridge University, where he received a diploma in economics. After completing his education, Ignatius was an editor at the Washington Monthly before moving to the Wall Street Journal, where he spent 10 years as a reporter. In 1986, Ignatius left the Journal for the Washington Post. In 2000, he became the executive editor of the International Herald Tribune in Paris. He returned to the Post in 2002 when the Post sold its interest in the Herald Tribune.

Ignatius's writing has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic Monthly, Foreign Affairs, The New Republic, Talk Magazine, and The Washington Monthly. He is also an associate editor and columnist for the Washington Post and he co-hosts PostGlobal, an online discussion of international issues at Washingtonpost.com, with Fareed Zakaria. He is a former Adjunct Lecturer at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and currently Senior Fellow to the Future of Diplomacy Program. The International Center for Journalists created the David Ignatius Award for International Reporting to honor the best project produced by participants in its Bringing Home the World international reporting fellowship program, funded by the Ford Foundation.

Ignatius has also written several novels, including Body of Lies, which director Ridley Scott adapted into a film. Ignatius's novels have been praised for their realism; his first novel, Agents of Innocence, was at one point described by the CIA on its website as "a novel but not fiction". He also worked on the political opera The New Prince.

He is married to Dr. Eve Thornberg Ignatius, with whom he has three daughters. He lives in Washington, D.C.
