IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: SIMON WINCHESTER - JOURNALIST AND AUTHOR

Rate this Entry

I'm about to start reading British native Simon Winchester's 2003 bestseller Krakatoa: The Day the World Exploded about the massive Indonesian volcano. I've always had a fascination with natural disasters all the way back to writing a junior high school research paper on hurricanes when I was growing up in Miami. Winchester's book on Krakatoa and his 2005 book A Crack in the Edge of the World about the 1906 San Francisco earthquake have had great reviews and I'm looking forward to reading both.


Simon Winchester is a noted journalist who is known for his work writing for The Guardian, The Sunday Times, Conde Naste Traveler, National Geographic and Smithsonian. His books have covered a variety of subjects including books on subjects like the Falklands War, the creation of the Oxford English Dictionary, the opening of China to the West and, most recently, a book on the real life inspiration for the character of Alice in Alice in Wonderland.
