Lewis was born in New Orleans, the son of corporate attorney J. Thomas Lewis and community activist Diana Monroe Lewis. He went to Isidore Newman School. He later attended Princeton University and graduated cum laude with a B.A. in art and archaeology in 1982 after completing a 166-page senior thesis titled "Donatello and the Antique." While at Princeton, Lewis was a member of the Ivy Club. He worked with New York City art dealer Daniel Wildenstein for a short while. In an interview with Charlie Rose, Lewis shared that his initial ambition was to become an art historian, but he was quickly dissuaded once he realized that there would be no jobs available for art historians and that even the handful that existed did not pay good salaries.Lewis subsequently enrolled at the London School of Economics and received an MA in economics in 1985. Lewis was hired by Salomon Brothers, stayed for a while in New York for their training program, and then relocated to London where he worked at Salomon's London office as a bond salesman for a few years. He has stated that the journalism found in "clips from The Economist and The Wall Street Journal", during this time, inspired him to explore becoming a writer.
