Exploring an astonishing range of genres and subject matter, Julie Salamon is the author of a score of novels, children’s books, and nonfiction books. Initially a longtime banking reporter and film critic for the Wall Street Journal, then a TV critic and arts reporter at the New York Times, she has also written hundreds of articles for such magazines as the New Yorker, the New Republic, and Vanity Fair. In An Innocent Bystander, Salamon tells the long-reverberating story of the 1985 slaying of disabled Jewish New Yorker Leon Klinghoffer at the hands of Palestinian terrorists aboard a luxury liner in the Mediterranean.
