His books in the last five years include two novels, Rediscovering Lone Pine (published by West-Thomson-Reuters), and Bordering on Madness: An American Land Use Tale (published by Carolina Academic Press).

Professor Popper is the winner of various awards including the Maryland Writers Association Prize for Mainstream Fiction, the American Bar Association Robert McKay Award for Excellence in Tort Law, the Guttman Casebook Award, and the American University Scholar-Teacher of the Year Award. Professor Popper’s next novel, Sunrise at the American Market, wase published in November 2015. Miriam Wesson, occasional NPR commentator, Distinguished Emeritus Professor at the University of Colorado, and noted author said the following of this work: “Once in a great while a book bewitches me so thoroughly that its later recollection comes to me as though I had been IN the book. I am for a moment surrounded by the world and experiences of the characters, until the more sober portion of my memory reminds that it was only a book I read, not a place I once visited. Usually books that have this effect are of the vivid swashbuckling variety—seafaring epics or sweeping historical narratives. Rarely, a quieter story will carry this same disorienting whisper of lived experience. Ann Tyler’s work sometimes does, and Richard Ford’s—and so does this remarkable novel of time, friendship, and place by Andy Popper. Read the book for its many pleasures; as a bonus the ghostly aroma of the market’s coffee will arrive every time you think of the story.” — Miriam Wesson, Author of Render Up the Body, A Suggestion of Death, Chilling Effect, and Death at Cripple Creek. In addition to his work in academia, he has served as a consumer rights advocate and pro bono counsel for the Consumers Union of America, testified before Congressional committees on more than 30 occasions, and authored amicus curiae briefs before the United States Supreme Court.
