Jeff Greenwald has traveled extensively through five continents, working as a journalist and photographer. In addition he has created exhibits, lectures, and educational programs for San Francisco’s Exploratorium, the University of California, The Body Shop, and the Asian Art Museum. Jeff’s first book was Mr. Raja’s Neighborhood: Letters from Nepal (John Daniel, 1986). Shopping for Buddhas, first published by Harper & Row in 1990, was recently released by Travelers Tales in an updated 25th Anniversary Edition. The Size of the World–a chronicle of his around-the-world overland voyage (Globe Pequot, 1995 & Ballantine, 1996)–was a national bestseller. This was followed by Future Perfect: How Star Trek Conquered Planet Earth, released in June 1998 by Viking Penguin and now available on Kindle. A collection of his best short pieces, Scratching the Surface, appeared in 2002. His most recent book, Snake Lake, was published by Counterpoint in 2010. Jeff is currently working on his new book, 108 Beloved Objects.
