Rory MacLean’s ten non-fiction books include the UK best-sellers Stalin’s Nose and Under the Dragon as well as Berlin: Imagine a City, a Washington Post Book of the Year (2014). His works – according to the late John Fowles – are among those that 'marvellously explain why literature still lives'. On his research journeys, he walked through the newly-opened Berlin Wall, met Aung San Suu Kyi when under house arrest in Rangoon and interviewed Pashtun elders at the Kacha Garhi refugee camp after the destruction of the World Trade Center. He has won awards from the Canada Council and the Arts Council of England as well as a Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship, and was nominated for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary prize.
