Mark Jacobson (b.1948) is an American author living in Brooklyn, New York, and New Orleans, Louisiana. He graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, and achieved recognition in New York City whilst writing for the Village Voice in the 1970s, most particularly for a lurid account of life in the Chinatown Ghost Shadows gang. His works include the cult favorite Godzilla epic Gojiro; the autobiographical Jacobson family travel saga 12,000 Miles in the Nick of Time - a Semi-Dysfunctional Family Circumnavigates the Globe; a novel "Everyone and No One"; a collection of articles including the Ghost Shadows VOICE story entitled "Teenage Hipster in the Modern World..."; The KGB Bar Nonfiction Reader; the highly praised but largely ignored compendium "American Monsters" which was published in 2004 and co-edited with Jacobson's close friend Jack Newfield, and the newly reissued American Gangster the basis for a 2007 film starring Denzel Washington. Jacobson was awarded the 2001 Humanitas Prize for his screenplay work on The Believer. Jacobson is currently a contributing Editor at New York Magazine and a frequent contributor to The Village Voice, National Geographic, Natural History Magazine, Men's Journal as well as other publications. Recent (2008) film work includes a screenplay, "Love Ranch", a dramatization of the murder of prizefighter Oscar Bonavena at the Mustang Ranch in Nevada in May, 1976. Jacobson was admitted to a Mardi Gras krewe in New Orleans (Bywater Bone Boys) on Mardi Gras day in 2005 and now resides part-time in the city. In November, 2008, Jacobson was injured in a fall while in Jerusalem researching a book on Nazi Holocaust atrocities and returned to Brooklyn to recuperate. In 2009 Jacobson made his film debut in the Steven Soderberg film "The Girlfriend Experience" in his role as a journalist interviewing adult film star Sasha Grey.
