Sopan Debb is a writer for�The New York Times, where he has covered culture and basketball. He is also a�New York City? based comedian. Before joining the Times, Deb was one of a handful of reporters who covered Donald Trump?s presidential campaign from start to finish as a campaign embed for�CBS News. He covered hundreds of rallies in more than forty states for a year and a half and was named a ?breakout media star? of the election by�Politic. At the New York Times, Deb has interviewed high-profile subjects such as Denzel Washington, Stephen Colbert, the cast of Arrested Development, Kyrie Irving, and Bill Murray. Deb?s work has previously appeared on�NBC, Al Jazeera America, and in the�Boston Globe, ranging from examining the trek of endangered manatees to following a class of blind filmmakers in Boston led by the former executive producer of�Friends. He won an Edward R. Murrow award for�Larger Than Life, a documentary he produced for the�Boston Globe. He lives in New York City with his fianc�e, Wesley.

Approaching his thirtieth birthday, Sopan Deb had found comfort in his career as a writer for�The New York Times�and as a stand-up comedian. But his stage material highlighting his South Asian heritage only served to mask the insecurities borne from his family history. Sure, Sopan knew the basics: his parents, both Bengali, separately immigrated to North America in the 1960s and 1970s. They were brought together in a messy and ultimately doomed arranged marriage. The couple raised two boys in suburban New Jersey before divorcing, after which Sopan?s father returned to India alone?without telling his sons.
