About Paul

I'm a deputy editor at ESPN.com, where I split my time between editing features and writing them. When I'm not writing about sports, I'm writing for places like The New Yorker, GQ, or The Wall Street Journal. My first book, The Saboteur, was a No. 1 bestseller on Amazon and optioned for a film by DreamWorks. My podcast, Now That's a Great Story, is all about how the world's best writers tell their favorites stories. I live in Connecticut with my wife, my mother-in-law, three children, and three old but still spunky pugs.
