His latest book, Radiant: The Life and Line of Keith Haring, was published by Harper/HarperCollins in March 2024. Gooch’s previous ten books include Flannery: A Life of Flannery O’Connor—a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, and a New York Times bestseller—and City Poet: The Life and Times of Frank O’Hara. Brad Gooch is the recipient of National Endowment for the Humanities and Guggenheim fellowships, and he was interviewed in New York City at BIO’s 2024 annual conference by BIO member Jenny Skoog.
