About the author (2007)

Anthony Sattin is the author of several works of nonfiction and fiction, including the highly acclaimed travel book about Egypt, The Pharaoh's Shadow, and an account of the search for Timbuktu, The Gates of Africa. Anthony discovered Florence Nightingale's previously unpublished letters from Egypt, which the New York Times called a publishing coup. He is the editior of Lonely Planet's A House Somewhere: Tales of Life Abroad, and has contributed to Lonely Planet's Morocco and Algeria books. He is based in London but spends half his year traveling, much of it in Egypt and elsewhere in North Africa. A longtime regular contributor to the London Sunday Times as both feature writer and literary critic, Anthony's works has appeared in Vanity Fair, GQ and a range of other publications, including Conde Nast Traveller, which recently described him as one of the 10 key influences on contemporary travel writing.
