About Tijs Goldschmidt

Trained in animal ecology and evolutionary biology, TIJS GOLDSCHMIDT abandoned his academic career at Leiden University in 1993 to dedicate himself fully to writing. "Darwin's Dreampond: Drama in Lake Victoria" (1996, The MIT Press) was his first book published in English, an account of a five-year stay in Tanzania in the 1980s, during which he studied the now-renowned cichlid fishes of Lake Victoria. The book was subsequently translated into numerous languages and received several awards in the Netherlands and abroad. In 2000, Goldschmidt was awarded the most prestigious Dutch prize for essay writing, the Jan Hanlo Essay Prize, for his book "Oversprongen" ("Crossovers"). He has since written a number of other books and given many lectures, including the Stephen Jay Gould Lecture in 2003, on the phenomenon of left and right in evolution, and the Huizinga Lecture in 2007, on "How to Fake Faking," about the role of play in culture. Goldschmidt lives in Amsterdam. SHERRY MACDONALD's translations from the Dutch for American publishers include "Darwin's Dreampond" (The MIT Press 1996) by Tijs Goldschmidt and "Tonguecat" (Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2003) by Peter Verhelst."
