Michael Lewis

Michael Lewis is possibly the most entertaining nonfiction writer alive. If that's not true it's at least close to true. Liar's Poker, Moneyball, The Blind Side, his NYT article about Jonathan Lebed (Google it): what's not to love?

Act Two: My Ames is True

Writer Michael Lewis tells the story of a man named Emir Kamenica, whose path to college started with fleeing the war in Bosnia and becoming a refugee in the United States. Then he had a stroke of luck: a student teacher read an essay he’d plagiarized from a book he’d stolen from a library back in Bosnia, and was so impressed that she got him out of a bad high school and into a much better one.

Act Three

Michael Lewis’ story continues, and he figures out why Emir Kamenica insists on remembering, and telling, the story of his life the way he does — even when he finds out that some of the facts may be wrong.
