Max Gross, the son of two writers, grew up in Brooklyn Heights and attended Saint Ann’s School and Dartmouth College. After school, he spent a year living in Israel before returning to New York. His first job in journalism was at the Forward newspaper, where he covered topics ranging from the talking fish of New Square, NY, to the modest society calling itself Jews for Allah. Gross later became a writer for the New York Post, where he covered real estate, travel and food. While at the Post, he wrote an article about what it’s like to look like Seth Rogen that was turned into the book From Schlub to Stud: How to Embrace Your Inner Mensch and Conquer the Big City. Gross is currently the Editor in Chief of the real estate publication Commercial Observer. He lives on the Upper West Side with his wife Jane and son Harry. The Lost Shtetl is his first novel.
