VJ Books Presents Author David Liss!

David Liss David Liss was born in New Jersey and grew up in South Florida. Liss received his B. A. degree from Syracuse University, an MA from Georgia State University and his MPhil from Columbia University. He began post-graduate studies of 18th Century British literature, but decided to leave this final degree unfinished in favor of writing full time.

His debut novel, A Conspiracy of Paper (2000) with its hero, the pugilist turned private investigator Benjamin Weaver, was named a New York Times Notable Book and won him the 2001 Barry, Macavity and Edgar awards for Best First Novel.

David's second novel, The Coffee Trader (2003) was also named a New York Times Notable Book and was selected by the New York Public Library as one of the year's Books to Remember.

Born in New Jersey and raised in Florida, David is, in fact, a one-time encyclopedia salesman. He received his B.A. from Syracuse University, an M.A. from Georgia State Universality and his M.Phil from Columbia University, where he left his dissertation unfinished to pursue his writing career.

David lives in San Antonio with his wife and children.
