James Polster

James Polster has produced movies for Columbia Pictures and NBC, received numerous awards both as novelist and journalist, graduate degrees from Harvard and Columbia, and is a National Fellow of the Explorers Club. Polster's exploits have been profiled often on radio, tv, and in print, and his first book, the award winning, A GUEST IN THE JUNGLE, helped focus a spotlight on the disappearing Amazon rainforest and the people who live there. His second book, BROWN, a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year, was singled out as one of Library Journal's "Books of Choice", and won the Critics' Choice Award (Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, L.A. Times, etc.) As a journalist, he has covered Indira Gandhi in New Delhi, the Duran/Leonard Superfight in New Orleans, Donald Trump in New York, cannibals in New Guinea, and both covered and played in the World Championships of Elephant Polo for Sports Illustrated in Nepal. A GUEST IN THE JUNGLE, BROWN, and his new novel, THE GRADUATE STUDENT are available from AmazonEncore. The New York Times calls Polster's writing "Outlandish adventure", the San Francisco Review of Books placed him on the cutting edge of talented, West Coast writers, Publishers Weekly calls his work "Bold, hilarious, essentially unclassifiable", and reviewers compare him to Vonnegut, Twain, Hiaasen, Waugh, and Hunter Thompson.
