Tim Wendel is the author of 12 books (novels and narrative nonfiction) and a writer-in-residence at Johns Hopkins University.

His books include the Summer of ’68, Castro’s Curveball, Habana Libre and High Heat. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, National Geographic, Gargoyle, Washingtonian, GQ and Esquire.

Pulitzer Prize winner David Maraniss calls Wendel’s work “a winning mix of science, biography and mythology.” The New York Times, in an Editor's Choice Selection, describes his writing as “sensitive and scrupulous.”
