He has written for GQ, Esquire, The New York Times Magazine, Spin, The Washington Post, The Guardian, The Believer, A.V. Club, and ESPN, and he now writes about sports and pop culture for Grantland.com. His first book, Fargo Rock City, was published to immediate acclaim in 2001.

Klosterman is the new ethicist for the New York Times Magazine, where he fearlessly tackles a broad range of moral conundrums and daily ethics. His keynote address for Book Summit 2013 will combine his experiences as a writer, his reflections on pop culture and publishing, and his musings about the thorny ethical issues the book world has confronted in recent years.
