Luke Dittrich

Journalist and Travel Writer

Luke Dittrich has been working as a journalist since 1997, and his on-the-job experiences have included running a marathon in Antarctica and walking 340 miles along the United States / Mexico border. He is a contributing editor at Esquire, and his articles have appeared in a variety of anthologies, including Best American Crime Writing, Best American Travel Writing, and Best American Science and Nature Writing. A story he wrote about the survivors of a devastating Missouri tornado won the 2012 National Magazine Award for feature writing, and Random House will soon be publishing his first book, Patient H.M: A Story of Memory, Madness, and Family Secrets. The book spans centuries of scientific and medical history, but has at its core a seminal event: In 1953, Dittrich's grandfather performed an experimental brain surgery on a young epileptic man named Henry Molaison, and accidentally transformed him into the most important human research subject of all time.
