Life and work[edit] Lopez is a native of Pittsburg, California,[1] and attended San Jose State University. He has been on staff at Time Inc. and written for Time, Life, Entertainment Weekly and Sports Illustrated. In addition, he was on staff at The Philadelphia Inquirer, the San Jose Mercury News and the Oakland Tribune. He wrote the novels Third and Indiana, The Sunday Macaroni Club, and "In the Clear." He has also compiled a collection of his works from The Philadelphia Inquirer titled Land of Giants, and a collection of Los Angeles Times columns called "Dreams & Schemes." Lopez's series of columns about his unlikely relationship with schizophrenic bassist[2] Nathaniel Anthony Ayers became the subject of a national best-selling book by Lopez that inspired the film The Soloist, which stars Robert Downey Jr. as Lopez.[2] Lopez was interviewed in the 2007 documentary Skid Row. Ayers and Lopez's relationship was also nationally highlighted in the March 22, 2009, episode of 60 Minutes.[3] In October 2010, Los Angeles city attorney Carmen Trutanich invited Lopez to participate in a driving test while under the influence of marijuana. The purpose of this study was to gauge the potential ramifications of California Proposition 19.[4]

Awards[edit] Lopez has won numerous national journalism awards including the H.L. Mencken and Ernie Pyle awards, and was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for columns on elder care and his father's declining health. In 2008 Lopez received the President's Award from the Los Angeles Press Club at the 50th Annual Southern California Journalism Awards. His book, "The Soloist," won the PEN USA award for literary non-fiction. Lopez has also won three local news Emmys and a share of the Columbia DuPont Award for his civic affairs reporting at KCET TV in Los Angeles. On April 29, 2011, Lopez received an honorary doctorate degree from his alma mater, San Jose State University.[5]
