Author: Rory MacLean

Rory MacLean is one of Britain's most innovative travel writers. His ten books, including UK best sellers Stalin's Nose and Under the Dragon, and now Berlin: Imagine a City, have challenged and invigorated the genre, and – according to the late John Fowles – are among works that "marvellously explain why literature still lives". He has won awards from the Arts Council of England and the Canada Council as well as a Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship, and was nominated for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary prize. He has written and presented over 50 BBC radio programmes and worked on movies with Marlene Dietrich and David Bowie. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, he divides his time between Berlin, Dorset and London where he is writer-in-residence at the Archive of Modern Conflict.
