About the author

Oct 27th - Ed Gorman200 Brought up in the English Midlands, Ed Gorman attended Cambridge University where he read economics and modern history and then set out to make his name in journalism in Soviet-occupied Afghanistan. His adventures there form the core of his first book with Arcadia, Death of a Translator, which is due for publication in 2017.

A 25-year career at The Times followed when Ed worked as a foreign news correspondent covering wars in Afghanistan, the Balkans and Sri Lanka. He was Ireland correspondent for four years during the Troubles, then sailing and Formula One writer and latterly deputy foreign editor and deputy head of news.

Married with three stepchildren, he now works from home in West Sussex, dividing his time between writing and his responsibilities as editorial director of a sports management company.
