John Freeman
John Freeman is an American writer and a literary critic. Freeman grew up in New York, Pennsylvania and California, and graduated from Swarthmore College. He was the editor of the literary magazine Granta until 2013, the former president of the National Book Critics Circle, and his writing has appeared in almost 200 English-language publications around the world. Freeman's second book, a collection of his interviews with major contemporary writers titled How to Read a Novelist features profiles of Margaret Atwood, John Updike, Geoff Dyer, Toni Morrison, Haruki Murakami, and others. According to a 2013 interview with Newsmax, Freeman profiled a number of female authors in How to Read a Novelist and specifically began the book with Toni Morrison because he thinks “the literary culture is often masculinized. But many of our teachers are women. Often times, if you’re a reader it’s because your mother is a reader—as mine certainly was.”
   

2007 James Patterson Pageturner Award for his work as the president of the National Book Critics Circle
