Bomber County, Daniel Swift’s first book, has been reviewed in the Times Literary Supplement and The Guardian, among others. The New York Times called the book, Daniel's account of his lost bomber pilot grandfather interspersed with the poetry of the World War II aviators, "a freewheeling exploration elegantly spiraling from the airborne Icarus to the husk of Cologne." Daniel teaches in the English department at Skidmore College, and his essays and reviews have appeared in the New York Times Book Review, the Guardian, Bookforum, and the Nation. Born in the U.K. and educated at Oxford and Columbia, he lives in New York City.
