Author of St. Martin's Press novel Campusland, Johnston grew up in Manhattan and went to Yale. From there, Wall Street (Salomon Brothers of Liar's Poker fame) and a stint in Hong Kong. On the side, he opened a couple of nightclubs in NYC. One, called the Baja, had a great run. After that, he started and ran a quant hedge fund for about a decade, taking some time to teach as an adjunct at Yale. Somewhere in there he penned a fun little book on golf betting games. Growing bored of finance, Johnston shifted gears to tech, co-founding two startups. He lives in Westchester with his wife and three kids.

"Where has this novel been all my life? (Or, at least the last decade when political correctness has taken over our schools!) I'm practically doing a happy dance.

I'm frankly shocked this found a publisher. Campusland does not pull punch..." Read more of this review »

"Hilarious trashy fun. Scott Johnston is shooting fish in a barrel, but some of these fish deserve nothing less than a Howitzer to the gills. Set at Devon University, which bears MORE than a passing resemblance to Yale, CAMPUSLAND spoofs just about..." Read more of this review »

I was an I-banking analyst just like Allegra, at least back when. It seems the misery hasn't changed much! Highly entertaining debut. Can't wait to read more from Henry!
