About the Author
Kurt Andersen is author of Heyday and Turn of the Century, and frequently writes for New York and Vanity Fair. He is host and co-creator of the Peabody Award-winning public radio program Studio 360. In 2006, he founded Very Short List, an e-mail service for connoisseurs of culture who would never call themselves "connoisseurs." He was co-founder of Spy magazine, and has been a columnist and critic for The New Yorker and Time. Andersen lives with his wife and daughters in Brooklyn.

Julie Burstein is a Peabody Award-winning radio producer and TED speaker. Julie designed Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen for Public Radio International, and led the creative team at WNYC for many years. She's the host of Pursuit of Spark, conversations about creative approaches to the possibilities, challenges, and pleasures of everyday life.

Reviews

"Spark is a beautiful book, enjoyable and filled with life...You will find yourself contemplating the origin of the little lights, the sparks, which show themselves only when someone special looks within." -- Philadelphia Inquirer

"This is a book about joy, drive and art, work that we're all capable of if we'll only commit." -- Seth Godin, author of Linchpin

"Through enlightening conversations, these creative individuals demonstrate how they lift raw materials out of familiar contexts and create art that changes how we perceive the world." -- Publishers Weekly

"Burstein offers enlightening answers from the culture's heavy hitters, as well as the process by which they stoked these embers into a roaring fire, and how you, yes, you, might too." -- Vanity Fair

"Spark is an encyclopedia of inspiration plucked from today's most revered creators, leaving you not with a one-size-fits-all blueprint to creativity but with a petri dish of eclectic insights for you to distill, cross-pollinate and fertilize into a richer understanding of your own creative life." -- Maria Popova, Brain Pickings

"How better to learn about creativity than to talk with some of the world's most creative people." -- Detroit Free Press
