About this author

Date of Birth: 1958

Tony Horwitz is an American journalist and writer. His works include Blue Latitudes, One for the Road, Confederates In The Attic and Baghdad Without A Map. His most recent work, published in April 2008, is A Voyage Long and Strange: Rediscovering the New World, a history and travelogue dealing with the early European exploration of North America.


A reader ordering Midnight Rising, my book on John Brown, reports she was sent another of same title that sounds like more fun.
It's a steamy vampire romance with the following blurb: "In a world of shadows and dark, consuming hungers, desire is the deadliest weapon..."
John Brown isn't just moldering in his grave, he's rolling over in it.

“The first thing you notice, coming to Israel from the Arab world, is that you have left the most courteous region of the globe and entered the rudest. The difference is so profound that you're left wondering when the mutation in Semitic blood occurred, as though God parted the Red Sea and said: "Okay, you rude ones, keep wandering toward the Promised Land. The rest of you can stay here and rot in the desert, saying 'welcome, most welcome' and drowning each other in tea until the end of time.”
Tony Horwitz, Baghdad without a Map and Other Misadventures in Arabia

“There are people one knows and people one doesn't. One shouldn't cheapen the former by feigning intimacy with the latter.”
Tony Horwitz, Confederates in the Attic: Dispatches from the Unfinished Civil War

“Hardcore chicken!”
Tony Horwitz
