About Christopher Hunt
I have been blessed with a blue-chip education. A native of New York City, I attended Trinity School, which Forbes ranked as the top private school in the U.S. I earned a B.A. from Dartmouth College, where I completed a double major in History and English, and graduated Magna Cum Laude. I received a Masters degree from London School of Economics and attended Stanford Law School for one year before turning to full-time writing.
As a journalist, I worked as a staff correspondent in the London office of The Economist and the Hong Kong bureau of The Wall Street Journal.
I am the author of two books, both of which are first-person narratives, the literary genre closest to college essays. One book, Sparring With Charlie: Motorbiking Down The Ho Chi Minh Trail, was published by Doubleday. The other book, Waiting For Fidel, was published by Houghton Mifflin.
