Ada Calhoun is the author of "Why We Can’t Sleep: Women’s New Midlife Crisis," an expansion of her viral story for Oprah.com about Generation X women.
Calhoun is also the author of New York City history book "St. Marks Is Dead: The Many Lives of America's Hippest Street," and the memoir "Wedding Toasts I'll Never Give." "Wedding Toasts I'll Never Give" was named one of the top 10 memoirs of 2017 and was called realistic, loving and laugh-out-loud funny by Publishers Weekly.
In addition to writing her own books, Calhoun has worked as an A‑list ghostwriter since 2009, collaborating on fourteen nonfiction books for major publishers, including several New York Times bestsellers.
She has contributed essays to various projects, including Beastie Boys Book; her essay there on Gen X womanhood was called “one of the more effective guest-star turns.”
As a freelance journalist, she has written for Time, National Geographic Traveler, O: The Oprah magazine, the Times Literary Supplement, The New Republic, Billboard, Cosmopolitan, and Redbook. She has contributed three essays to the New Yorker’s online “Page-Turner” column; and two op-ed, three “Modern Love,” and four “Lives” columns to the New York Times. Past jobs include crime reporter for the New York Post, frequent contributor to The New York Times Book Review, editor-in-chief of the online magazine Babble.com, and second-string theater critic for New York magazine.
Her national news reporting has won multiple awards, including a USC-Annenberg National Health Journalism Fellowship, Kiplinger fellowship, CCF Media Award (for her New York Times Magazine reporting in Alabama), Croly Award, and an Alicia Patterson Foundation fellowship.
She has taught reporting and writing at colleges and workshops, including public affairs reporting at Hofstra University, creative non-fiction at the Rutgers Summer Conference, and memoir at the 2018 Miami Book Fair’s Writers Institute.
