A. Brad Schwartz
A. Brad Schwartz is a writer and historian, currently a doctoral candidate in American history at Princeton University. He has co-authored two books with Road to Perdition creator Max Allan Collins: "SCARFACE AND THE UNTOUCHABLE: Al Capone, Eliot Ness, and the Battle for Chicago" (William Morrow, 2018) and "ELIOT NESS AND THE MAD BUTCHER: Hunting America’s Deadliest Unidentified Serial Killer at the Dawn of Modern Criminology" (William Morrow, 2020). Brad's first book, "BROADCAST HYSTERIA: Orson Welles's War of the Worlds and the Art of Fake News" (Hill and Wang, 2015), draws upon a trove of long-lost listener letters to reexamine the infamous 1938 "panic broadcast." The book is based on the groundbreaking research Brad conducted as part of his senior thesis in history at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. He also co-wrote a 2013 episode of the PBS series AMERICAN EXPERIENCE about the "War of the Worlds" broadcast, based in part on his thesis research. Brad has written for the New York Times, the Washington Post, Vanity Fair, Smithsonian, and The Daily Beast. In 2014, Brad’s screenplay THE WOLF was voted onto “The Hit List,” a catalog of Hollywood’s favorite unproduced spec scripts. He divides his time between East Lansing, Michigan, and Princeton, New Jersey.Read more Read less
