Amy Waldman's first novel, The Submission, was published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux in 2011. It tells the story of an anonymous competition to design a 9/11 memorial -- and of the American Muslim who wins it. An acclaimed bestseller, it was a New York Times Editors' Choice, an Amazon Editors' Fall Pick, one of Barnes & Noble's Best Books of 2011 and one of the New York Times Review's 100 Notable Books of 2011.
USA Today called it "An emotionally and politically rich novel . . . The Submission raises wrenching post-9/11 questions about what it means to be an American . . . [Waldman's] novel transcends ideological politics."
Amy was a reporter for The New York Times from 1997 through 2005, including three years as co-chief of the New Delhi bureau. She has reported extensively in India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, as well as in Iran, Iraq, and in Muslim communities in Great Britain, the former Soviet Union, and elsewhere. Her series on India's national highways won an Overseas Press Club award. From 2006 to 2008 she was a national correspondent for the Atlantic.
Her fiction has appeared in the Boston Review and the Atlantic and was anthologized in The Best American Non-Required Reading 2010.
