David Zweig is a writer based in New York. Invisibles (Penguin, June 2014), his first nonfiction book, is an expansion of his acclaimed Atlantic article “What Do Fact-Checkers and Anesthesiologists Have in Common?” Invisibles generated press around the world, with coverage in the U.S., Canada, Italy, France, Australia, South Korea, Ireland, the UK, Peru, Israel, Brazil, and Ukraine, among other countries. Translation rights have been sold in territories in Asia, Europe, and South America.

Years ago, as a singer, guitar player, and producer Zweig released two albums, All Now With Wings and Keep Going. Both albums charted on college radio playlists and garnered accolades for Zweig, with the press calling him a “symphonic pop prodigy.” An extended music bio can be found here.

His debut novel, Swimming Inside The Sun, a modernist tale about identity and self-consciousness, was released fall 2009. It received a rave review from Kirkus calling it a “terrific debut from a talented writer.” 

Zweig has been invited to lecture about the intersection of media, technology and psychology at numerous universities and academic conferences around the country and abroad. As an independent journalist he has written for The Atlantic, New York Magazine, The New York Times, The New Yorker, Wired, and The Wall Street Journal, among other publications.

Forthcoming Works:

An Abundance of Caution, an investigation into the debacle of American school closures during the pandemic, is currently under contract with MIT Press, with a projected publication in 2023.  

Merely Players, a historical and present analysis about the influence of technology on self-consciousness, is currently under contract with Counterpoint Press, with a projected publication in 2024.
