Rory MacLean

Rory MacLeanWith the publication of Stalin’s Nose, Rory MacLean crashed through the norms of the genre to create a literary species almost his own. To mark the republication of his early books (with introductions from Colin Thubron, William Dalrymple and Jan Morris), Rory will retrace sixteen passionate years of journeying, from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the rise of the Taliban, and talk about how – like Chatwin and Kapuscinski before him – he audaciously crosses the travel book with some of the wilder forms of the novel.
