Over the last 20 years, David Kamp has carved out a thriving dual career in "proper" journalism and humor writing—like Calvin Trillin's, only far less respected and lucrative. A contributing writer for Vanity Fair magazine, Kamp has delved deeply into cultural Americana, his subjects ranging from Johnny Cash to John Hughes to Alice Waters to Tom Wolfe to Norman Rockwell.

He is perhaps best known as the author of the national bestseller The United States of Arugula, a chronicle of changing American foodways that the New York Times placed on the cover of its book review and named "Notable Book of the Year."

The United States of Arugula charts the amazing course that the American food experience has taken in the last several decades—from iceberg lettuce and Wonder Bread to microgreens and artisanal brioche; from a postwar era in which even pizza was a novelty food (eaten almost exclusively by Italian-Americans) to our brave new world of supermarket sushi, airport lattés, fancy-pants burgers, celebrity chefs, urban farmer's markets, and destination restaurants. With wit and a lively novelistic touch, Kamp tells the story of how this all happened, focusing on such visionary, provocative characters as Julia Child, James Beard, Craig Claiborne, Alice Waters, Wolfgang Puck, Emeril Lagasse, and Mario Batali.

Prior to joining Vanity Fair, Kamp was an editor and writer at GQ, and, before that, at Spy, the satirical New York monthly magazine. Kamp is also the author of the beloved "Snob's Dictionary" series of humorous lexicons, which thus far includes The Rock Snob's Dictionary, The Film Snob's Dictionary, The Food Snob's Dictionary, and The Wine Snob's Dictionary.

Kamp's next book, a popular history of the 1970s in America, will be published by Broadway Books in 2012-13. He is for, rather than against, the fact that the 70s happened.
