Frank Bruni
Earl Wilson/The New York Times

Frank Bruni, an Op-Ed columnist for The New York Times since June 2011, joined the newspaper in 1995. Over his years at The Times he has worn a wide variety of hats, including chief restaurant critic (from June 2004 through August 2009) and Rome bureau chief (2002 to 2004).

He has also written two New York Times best sellers: a memoir, "Born Round," that was published by Penguin Press in 2009, and "Ambling Into History," a chronicle of George W. Bush's campaign for the presidency, published by HarperCollins in 2002. That same year HarperPerennial reissued, in paperback, "A Gospel of Shame: Children, Sexual Abuse and the Catholic Church," of which he was a co-author. (It was initially published by Viking in 1993.)

Mr. Bruni came to The Times from The Detroit Free Press, where he wrote a profile of a convicted child molester that was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in feature writing. At The Times he first worked for the metropolitan desk and, along with three colleagues, won the George Polk Award for metropolitan reporting for coverage of the child-abuse death of Elisa Izquierdo. He later relocated to the Washington bureau, covering Congress and then Mr. Bush's presidential campaign and his first year in office. He left Washington for Rome.

He has consistently contributed to the Times's Sunday magazine, and during two periods, most recently from 2009 to 2011, was one of its staff writers. For the magazine he has profiled an array of prominent politicians and entertainers, including Hillary Clinton and J. J. Abrams. His work has also frequently appeared in the newspaper's Travel, Arts & Leisure and Book Review sections. From 2010 to 2011, he additionally wrote a column on bars and drinking, "The Tipsy Diaries."

Born in White Plains, N.Y., on Oct. 31, 1964, Mr. Bruni received a B.A. degree (Phi Beta Kappa) from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where he was a Morehead scholar, in 1986. He received an M.S. degree in journalism, with highest honors, from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in 1988, graduating second in his class and winning a Pulitzer Traveling Fellowship.

(I particularly admire Mr. Bruni for researching and publishing a book documenting the Catholic Church's part in sexual abuse of children - BACK IN 1993. One of my kids also has a master's degree from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism - rated the world's best journalism program. Graduating 2nd in his class & getting a Pulitzer Traveling Fellowship are outstanding achievements.)
