Diane Ackerman is the author of two dozen highly-acclaimed works of poetry and nonfiction, including New York Times bestsellers The Zookeeper's Wife, A Natural History of the Senses,The Human Age, and Pulitzer Prize Finalist, One Hundred Names for Love.

"I find that writing each book becomes a mystery trip, one filled with mental, emotional (and sometimes physical) adventures. The world revealing itself, human nature revealing itself, is seductive and startling, and that's always been fascinating enough to send words down my spine. But writing a book is only part of the creative process; the circle completes when it settles in a reader's heart. I hope you'll join me on my travels." — Diane Ackerman





Diane's bestselling book, The Zookeeper's Wife, has been made into a movie, starring Jessica Chastain and Daniel Brühl.
