Jonathan Eig is the New York Times best-selling author of four books: LUCKIEST MAN, OPENING DAY, GET CAPONE, and, most recently, THE BIRTH OF THE PILL. He is currently working on a biography of Muhammad Ali.
Before writing books, Jonathan worked as a reporter for The Wall Street Journal, Chicago magazine, The Dallas Morning News, and the New Orleans Times-Picayune. His work has also appeared in the New York Times, Esquire, and The Washington Post. He has appeared on NBC’s "Today Show," "NPR," and in the Prohibition documentary made by Ken Burns for PBS.
