Alex Hamilton grew up in Argentina and Brazil and attended Clifton College and The Queen's College, Oxford. While writing fiction and contributing to and editing many books, both non-fiction and fiction, and a stint on The Times, Alex wrote about books, publishing and travel for 25 years at the Guardian. Married in 1965, he has two sons, and moved from Marylebone to Norfolk in 1997.Review:
'Eccentric, partial, sometimes gossipy, but well-stocked with sharp observation and deft, frequently witty and astitude judgement.... [an] entertaining guide.' -- Eastern Daily Press "A rich and fascinating collection, and a great read" -- Al Alvarez "As varied and quirky a gallery of portraits as you could hope to find. Hamilton is both generous and observant, and he gets the best out of his people." -- Anthony Thwaite 'In this collection, Alex Hamilton seems to have interviewed every writer of distinction for the past half-century. Not only is it very wide-ranging, it also shines a light into some very curious corners. I found it fascinating from beginning to end.' -- Philip Pullman
