Pony Up on Tybee

posted by bfeiler

Now’s the time to plan that birthday party on Tybee Island, once lovingly known by residents as Seedy Savannah Beach, my home away from home since I was a child and the name of one of my twins. Forget the […]

posted by bfeiler

Our instructions were to show up at the Northwest Appointment Gate at 8:55 AM on Friday morning. My parents had flown up from Georgia; Mrs. Feiler Faster and I had made our way down from New York. My Dad had […]

White House Nation

posted by bfeiler

As we were leaving the White House, I asked if we could see the new press digs, and we were escorted into the room, which is no larger than the old room, of course, but much fancier, with leather seats […]

Tap, Tap, Tap

posted by bfeiler

The backsplash is growing! PepsiCo Inc. will spell out that its Aquafina bottled water is made with tap water, a concession to the growing environmental and political opposition to the bottled water industry. According to Corporate Accountability International, a U.S. […]

The Epic of the Epic of Gilgamesh

posted by bfeiler

In my reading pile this weekend from my father: An excerpt in Smithsonian of a new book about the unlikely man who discovered the Epic of Gilgamesh and made the connection between the oldest flood epic ever uncovered and the […]

End of Muslim Extremism?

posted by bfeiler

Where are the moderate Muslims? Everywhere, apparently. A new study by Pew shows that support for suicide bombings has been cut in half in many parts of the Muslim world. Most notably, the survey finds large and growing numbers of […]

When Tom Brady Becomes Angelina Jolie

posted by bfeiler

A few weeks ago I complained (joining what turned out to be a chorus of complainers) when Angelina Jolie besmirched the legacy of Danny Pearl by imposing absurd media-restrictions on her interviews to promote “A Mighty Heart.” Now it turns […]

What Every Traveler Fears

posted by bfeiler

It can happen to anyone, even the most experienced traveler. One of Lonely Planet’s most well-traveled writers, Clem Lindenmayer, has been found dead on a Chinese mountainside, three months after he was reported missing. Mr Lindenmayer, 47, had set out […]

Falwell, Robertson, Interfaith Pioneers?

posted by bfeiler

Here’s one of the more exciting stories I’ve seen in a while. One of the most common questions I get when the subject turns to interfaith relations is, “What about the people who don’t want to talk?” Well, it looks […]

Going Oval

posted by bfeiler

In February, I received a call from my father one day, “The president of the United States just mispronounced your name on national television.” With a little digging, I soon learned that at the end of an interview with C-SPAN […]

Russia Pulling USA Out of Iraq?

posted by bfeiler

Kudos to my brother for pointing out on Saturday night what I’ve now seen elsewhere on the web. TIME has a provocative cover this week showing a helicopter airlifting the A(merica) out of I-R-A-Q. The image is clearly evocative of […]

Muslim Sunblock

posted by bfeiler

I just returned from a weekend at the beach on Tybee Island with my two-year-old twins girls. My wife, having just come through a skin cancer scare, has imported long-sleeve, UV-protected bodysuits for them from Australia. Looks like she may […]

The Revenge of Bottled Water

posted by bfeiler

The bottled-water bottlers must be feeling the heat. For newcomers to Feiler Faster, I’ve been on something of a tirade against the addiction many Americans have to bottled water. And it’s not just because Mrs. Feiler Faster is one of […]

“My Ears are Falling Down!”

posted by bfeiler

Heard last night, somewhere between Charlotte and LGA, in the seat next to me, from a very cute two-year-old , with her hands over her ears, describing as best she could what it felt like to have her ears pop. […]

Harry Potter and the Sabbath Hallows

posted by bfeiler

In the spring of 2005, when my wife was around eight months pregnant with identical twin girls, we took the mandatory tour of the hospital on the Upper East Side of Manhattan where she was going to deliver (naturally!) our […]

Feiler Faster 2.0

posted by bfeiler

In March 2001, on the eve of the publication of Walking the Bible, I started a website, www.brucefeiler.com. I did it on a whim. “Authors should have websites,” I thought. It changed my life. Not just my professional life. My […]

The Man Who Started It All
