Dan Barry is a reporter and columnist for the New York Times. He is the author of a memoir, a collection of his About New York columns, and Bottom of the 33rd, for which he won the 2012 PEN/ESPN Award for Literary Sports Writing.

His newest work, The Boys in the Bunkhouse, is a "luminous work of social justice, told with compassion and compelling detail," a story about a group of men with intellectual disability, all from Texas, living in a tired old schoolhouse for more than three decades - with the people of Atalissa, Iowa, failing to notice the hints of neglect, exploitation, and physical and emotional abuse, and how a few conscientious social workers, a local journalist, and one tenacious government lawyer came to their rescue.
