Jim Gorant

Jim Gorant's career in magazine publishing began in 1990 with a job at "Good Housekeeping" and led him to "Sports Illustrated," where he is currently a senior editor.

Jim's original SI cover story on the dogs of Bad Newz kennels won the Humane Society’s Genesis Award for magazine writing. He is also the recipient of the John Southam Award and of multiple writing awards from both the Golf Writers Association of America and Boating Writers International. Prior to The Lost Dogs, Jim authored "Fanatic: 10 Things All Sports Fans Should Do Before They Die," a title that despite its length doesn’t come close to capturing the book’s essence (it’s not a list book), and he is also the co-author of "Fit For Golf" (with Boris Kuzmic).
