Bestselling travel writer
Rory MacLean is one of Britain’s most expressive and adventurous travel writers. His fourteen books include the UK top tens Stalin’s Nose and Under the Dragon as well as Pravda Ha Ha and Berlin: Imagine a City, a book of the year and ‘the most extraordinary work of history I’ve ever read’ according to the Washington Post. He has won awards from the Canada Council and Arts Council of England and was nominated for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary prize. ‘MacLean must surely be the outstanding, and most indefatigable, traveller-writer of our time,’ wrote the late John le Carré. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, he divides his time between the UK, Berlin and Toronto…in normal years.
