Trivia Answer

Answer:  Erik Larson.  Larson’s newest novel is In the Garden of the Beasts:  Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler’s Berlin which  came out last May.  He also won an Edgar’s award for non-fiction crime writing with his book, The Devil in the White City:  Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America.  Both are fascinating non-fiction reads that are filled with history.
