Brian Abrams is the author of the best-selling Kindle Singles AND NOW...An Oral History of "Late Night With David Letterman," 1982-1993, Gawker: An Oral History, and Die Hard: An Oral History.
His first book, Party Like a President: True Tales of Inebriation, Lechery, and Mischief from the Oval Office (Workman Publishing), was released on February 10, 2015.
As editor-in-chief for the news and culture site Death and Taxes Magazine, Brian is classically trained in blogging the cultural apocalypse and digging for Internet gold, which sounds pretty gross. For four years at the satirical quarterly Heeb Magazine, he produced tongue-in-cheek ad campaigns, wrangled celebrities for controversial photo shoots, and managed live events in multiple cities.
Brian has written for several outlets including Washington Post Magazine, Time.com, Film Drunk, Splitsider, High Times, and Playboy.
He lives in New York City.
