      Tony Horwitz: Biography

      Tony Horwitz is a native of Washington D.C. and a graduate of Brown University (history major) and Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. Before becoming a journalist, he worked for a hospital in Kentucky, and for a pulpwood haulers' union in Mississippi, and produced a television documentary about his experiences, called "Mississippi Wood."

      After stints as a reporter for the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel in Indiana, and The Sydney Morning Herald in Australia, he became a foreign correspondent for The Wall Street Journal, covering conflicts in the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. Since returning to America in 1993, he has been based in Waterford, Virginia, writing primarily about the South, for The Wall Street Journal and as a staff writer for The New Yorker. His work has also appeared in The New York Times, Harpers, and other publications.

      Tony is the author of three nonfiction books. One For the Road: An Outback Journey (about his travels in Australia), Baghdad Without A Map and other Misadventures in Arabia (about his experiences in the Middle East), and Confederates in the Attic: Dispatches from the Unfinished Civil War. His awards include the Overseas Press Club Award for best foreign news reporting (for coverage of the Gulf War), and the Pulitzer Prize for national reporting (for stories about low-wage work in America). He is spending 2000 in Australia with his wife Geraldine and four-year-old son Nathaniel, researching a book on the journeys of Captain Cook.
