Profile james grady


He graduated from the University of Montana School of Journalism in 1974. During college he worked for U.S. Senator Lee Metcalf of Montana. From 1974-1978, during the post-Watergate era, he worked with pioneering muckraking investigative journalist Jack Anderson. He has contributed to Slate, The Washington Post, Washingtonian, American Film, The New Republic, Sport, Parade, and the Journal of Asian Martial Arts. Grady is best known as the author of the espionage thriller novel Six Days of the Condor, which was famously adapted to film as Three Days of the Condor starring Robert Redford and directed by Sydney Pollack. In addition to about a dozen novels and many short stories, he has written for film and television. Grady is a member of the Writers Guild of America, East.

Grady married Bonnie Goldstein in 1985 and is the stepfather of Rachel Grady, director of the documentary Jesus Camp. He is a bookish cinephile who also enjoys the study of T’ai-chi, swimming, and listening to progressive rock.
