Philip Smith is the former managing editor of GQ magazine and an artist whose works are in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum, the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts, New York Public Library, Bass Art Museum, Miami Art Museum, and the Chase Art Collection, among others. He divides his time between Miami and New York. In his funny, touching, and ultimately redemptive memoir, WALKING THROUGH WALLS (Atria Books, September 2008), Smith tells the story of trying to grow up as an average, down-to-earth kid in a household where the paranormal was the norm.
