Patrick Radden Keefe has garnered prizes ranging from the National Magazine Award to the Orwell Prize to the National Book Critics Circle Award for his meticulously-reported, hypnotically-engaging work on the many ways people behave badly. Rogues brings together a dozen of his most celebrated articles from The New Yorker. As Keefe says in his preface “They reflect on some of my abiding preoccupations: crime and corruption, secrets and lies, the permeable membrane separating licit and illicit worlds, the bonds of family, the power of denial.”

Patrick Radden Keefe is a staff writer at The New Yorker  and the author of the New York Times bestsellers Empire of Pain, winner of the 2021 Baillie Gifford Prize, and Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland, which received the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction, was selected as one of the ten best books of 2019 by The New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune and The Wall Street Journal, and was named one of the “10 Best Nonfiction Books of the Decade” by Entertainment Weekly. His previous books are The Snakehead and Chatter. His work has been recognized with a Guggenheim Fellowship, the National Magazine Award for Feature Writing and the Orwell Prize for Political Writing. He is also the creator and host of the eight-part podcast Wind of Change.

Keefe will be in conversation with James Fallows, a long-time book and magazine writer. The most recent of his 12 books is Our Towns, co-authored with his wife, Deborah Fallows. It was a NYT best-seller and the basis of a 2021 HBO documentary, and of the new Our Towns Foundation. His other books include National Defense, which won the American Book Award, and Breaking the News, which is the name of his Substack site. He has contributed to The Atlantic since the 1970s and won the National Magazine Award for his work there. He is originally from Southern California and has reported for many years from China, Japan, Southeast Asia, and other parts of the world.
