Garret Keizer

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in my work. I’m the author of seven books, the most recent of which are The Unwanted Sound of Everything We Want and Privacy. I am also a contributing editor of Harper’s Magazine, a former Guggenheim Fellow, and a freelance writer and lecturer. Much of my writing has to do with matters of politics, religion, and justice.
