The Massachusetts native has written more than 4,000 columns collectively for The Boston Globe, and New York Daily News, where he rose to prominence with his hard-hitting and often heart-wrenching must-read columns that closely followed the triumphs, travails and ambitions of Boston’s working and middle classes. Barnicle’s articles and commentary have also been published in Time magazine, Newsweek/The Daily BeastThe Huffington Post, ESPN The Magazine, Grantland and Esquire, among others.
