Daniel de Visé is an author and journalist. A graduate of Wesleyan and Northwestern
universities, he has worked at the The Washington Post, the Miami Herald and three
other newspapers in a 23-year career. He shared a 2001 Pulitzer Prize and garnered
more than two dozen other national and regional journalism awards. His investigative
reporting twice led to the release of wrongly convicted men from life terms in prison.
His first book, I Forgot To Remember, published in 2014 from Simon & Schuster; it began
as a front-page article de Visé wrote for the Washington Post about his co-author, Su Meck.
His second book, Andy & Don, also from Simon & Schuster, began as a journalistic
exploration into the storied career of his late brother-in-law, Don Knotts. The Comeback,
his third book, drew inspiration from a childhood immersed in Chicago’s bicycle-racing
subculture. In 2019, The Comeback inspired U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson of California to
nominate Greg LeMond for the Congressional Gold Medal, the nation’s highest civilian
honor; that legislation is pending. Daniel is married to Sophie Yarborough, a senior editor
at The Washington Post. They and their children live in Maryland.
