: As a novelist and writer for Wired
and other publications, Po Bronson has earned a reputation as the most exciting and authentic literary voice to emerge from Silicon Valley. In his national bestseller The Nudist on the Late Shift
he tells the true story of the mostly under-thirty entrepreneurs and tech wizards, immigrants and investors, dreamers and visionaries, who see the Valley as their Mecca. Taking us inside the world of these newcomers, brainiacs, salespeople, headhunters, utopians, plutocrats, and innovators as they transform our culture, The Nudist on the Late Shift
is a defining portrait of a new generation in the whirl of an information revolution and an international gold rush.
Po Bronson is the author of two novels and one book of nonfiction. Bombardiers
, a dark satire of high finance, was an international bestseller that was translated into twelve languages. The First $20 Million Is Always the Hardest
, soon to be a feature film from 20th Century Fox, is a comedy of Silicon Valley. His third bestseller, The Nudist on the Late Shift and Other True Tales of Silicon Valley
, demonstrates that Bronson's wit and imagination apply as well to nonfiction as to fiction.
