Douglas Cooper


Douglas Anthony Cooper's first novel, Amnesia, was a national bestseller. It was shortlisted for the Books in Canada First Novel Award, and longlisted for the Commonwealth Prize.

In the last few years he has published two bestselling novels for young adults: Milrose Munce and the Den of Professional Help, and Milrose Munce and the Plague of Toxic Fungus.

Cooper lives in Oaxaca, but collaborates regularly with artists and architects around the world: most recently on a video installation with Diller Scofidio + Renfro at the Venice Biennale.

For five years he was a Contributing Editor at New York Magazine, where he wrote and photographed the travel features.

Cooper’s work has appeared in Food & Wine, Wired, Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and others. These pieces have won numerous awards, including the Lowell Thomas Gold Medal, America’s most prestigious award for travel writing.

Despite being a Canadian living in Mexico, his work was chosen for The Best American Travel Writing (ed. Pico Iyer).
