Trevor Corson

Trevor Corson is the author of two books, the worldwide popular-science bestseller "The Secret Life of Lobsters: How Fishermen and Scientists Are Unraveling the Mysteries of Our Favorite Crustacean" and the award-winning "The Story of Sushi: An Unlikely Saga of Raw Fish and Rice", both published by HarperCollins. Trevor's writing has also appeared in The Atlantic, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, The Nation, Transition, Gastronomica, and other publications. Trevor's first book, an illustrated novel that he bound with cardboard and yarn when he was nine, told of a robotic belly-button cleaner gone berserk. Later Trevor decided that even stranger than fiction was fact. In pursuit of nonfiction writing projects over the course of his career, Trevor has lived among student activists in China, worked as a commercial fisherman through winters off the coast of New England, followed chefs in kitchens and actors on adult film sets in Los Angeles, participated in fire rituals in Buddhist temples in rural Japan, wangled his way aboard scientific research ships, and partnered with an atomic-bomb survivor promoting peace. Trevor's writing has covered subjects as diverse as undersea decapod romance, the entwined history of race and aerial bombing, the social physiology of taste perception, the risks of submarine warfare, the scientific and religious politics of how we define death, the plight of factory workers in China's rustbelt, and the joy of solitude.
