Rory MacLean

Rory MacLean's books, including best-sellers Stalin's Nose and Under the Dragon, have challenged and invigorated travel writing, and – according to the late John Fowles – are among works that 'marvellously explain why literature still lives'.

Rory’s books have won awards from the Canada Council and the Arts Council of England, were shortlisted twice for the Thomas Cook Travel Book Prize and nominated for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary award. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and recipient of a Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship. He has written and presented over 50 programmes for BBC radio and worked on movies with David Bowie and Marlene Dietrich. Born in Canada and resident for many years in Britain, he divides his time between London, Dorset and Berlin.
