Timeline of David Grann


The book was optioned by Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company and Paramount Pictures. It was adapted into a feature film of the same name and released in the US in 2017.


In March 2014, Grann said he was working on a new book about the Osage Indian murders, “one of the most sinister crimes in American history.” His book Killers of the Flower Moon: An American Crime and the Birth of the FBI was published in 2017, chronicling “a tale of murder, betrayal, heroism and a nation’s struggle to leave its frontier culture behind and enter the modern world.” It was a finalist for the 2017 National Book Award. The book was acquired for film adaptation by Martin Scorsese in 2017 for possible production in 2020.


Another New Yorker investigative article, “The Mark of a Masterpiece”, raised questions about the methods of Peter Paul Biro, who claimed to use fingerprints to help authenticate lost masterpieces. Biro sued Grann and The New Yorker for libel, but the case was summarily dismissed. The article was a finalist for the 2010 National Magazine Award.

An anthology of twelve previously published Grann essays, The Devil and Sherlock Holmes: Tales of Murder, Madness, and Obsession, was published in March 2010.


His first book, The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon, was published by Doubleday in February 2009. After its first week of publication, it debuted on The New York Times bestseller list at #4.

In 2009 he received both the George Polk Award and Sigma Delta Chi Award for his New Yorker piece “Trial By Fire”, about Cameron Todd Willingham. It has been described as the first thoroughly documented case of the execution of an innocent man under the modern American judicial system.

Grann’s 2009 non-fiction book The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon recounts the odyssey of the notable British explorer, Captain Percy Fawcett who, in 1925, disappeared with his son in the Amazon while looking for the Lost City of Z. For decades, explorers and scientists have tried to find evidence of both his party and the Lost City of Z. Grann also trekked into the Amazon. In his book, he reveals new evidence about how Fawcett died and shows that “Z” may have existed.


Grann’s articles have been collected in several anthologies, including What We Saw: The Events of September 11, 2001, The Best American Crime Writing of 2004 and 2005, and The Best American Sports Writing of 2003 and 2006. He has written for The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and The Weekly Standard. According to a profile in Slate, Grann has a reputation as a “workhorse reporter”, which has made him a popular journalist who “inspires a devotion in readers that can border on the obsessive.”


In 2000 Grann married Kyra Darnton, a television producer and daughter of John Darnton. He has curated the George Polk Awards. The couple has two children. As of 2009 they resided in New York City.


In 1996, Grann became a senior editor at The New Republic. He joined The New Yorker in 2003 as a staff writer. He was a finalist for the Michael Kelly Award in 2005.


His journalism career began after he was hired in 1994 as a copy editor at The Hill, a Washington, D.C.-based newspaper covering the United States Congress. The same year, he earned a master’s degree in creative writing from Boston University, where he taught courses in creative writing and fiction. He was named The Hill’s executive editor in 1995.


Born in New York City, Grann graduated from Connecticut College in 1989 with a B.A. in Government. He received a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship and conducted research in Mexico, where he began his career as a freelance journalist. He received a master’s degree in international relations from The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in 1993. At that point primarily interested in fiction, Grann hoped to develop a career as a novelist.
