Reviewers & Critics: (NCF Alum) David Canfield of Entertainment Weekly

From Poets and Writers, April 8, 2020

Over the past several years, Entertainment Weekly books editor David Canfield has emerged as one of the brightest and smartest talents in the literary industry. He writes and assigns publishing stories as well as book reviews; creates monthly, seasonal, and annual book lists; and interviews a wealth of writers—over the years he has profiled such luminaries as Tomi Adeyemi, Ronan Farrow, Sally Field, Leslie Jamison, Sally Rooney, and Colson Whitehead, among many others.

Born in Redondo Beach, California, Canfield spent a great deal of his childhood in Auckland, New Zealand, and later received his BA from New College of Florida, where he studied political science.
