Brock is also the author of Charlatan: America's Most Dangerous Huckster, the Man Who Pursued Him, and the Age of Flimflam (Crown, 2008), an account of the improbable career of John Brinkley, the most successful quack in U.S. history, and Indiana Gothic (Doubleday/Nan Talese). His work has appeared in GQ, Rolling Stone, Esquire, Talk, The New Yorker, London Independent, Life, People, and the London Sunday Times Magazine.
Brock received his BA from Harvard University and his MFA from New York University School of the Arts. He is currently on the faculty of the MFA Program in Writing at the University of Nebraska.
Brock's lecture will be followed by a reception in the Visual Arts Center "Fishbowl."
