Peter Suderman

Peter Suderman has no real useful knowledge or skills, but has watched a few movies and enjoys middlebrow television and indie rock, and thus dabbles mostly in that generally useless thing labeled “cultural criticism.” He’s a regular contributor to NRO, and his writing has been published in National Review, The New Atlantis, The American Conservative, Commentary, The Washington Times, The Washington Examiner, Reason, and a number of other publications. Occasionally, he’ll claim to be a libertarian, but that’s really just Washington code for “argumentative geek.” After a brief stint trying to make it as a stereotypical Brooklynite, he recently returned to the Washington, D.C. area, where he doesn’t ever have to explain to anyone what the Cato Institute is. He currently lives in what’s politely known as an “up and coming neighborhood” in the District. He responds to most reasonably sane, not overly belligerent emails sent to peter.suderman@gmail.com.
