Short biography
Anthony Grey, through no fault or merit of his own, became the focus of worldwide headlines in 1967 when he was seized as a hostage by Mao Tse-tungs's Red Guards. Held in solitary confinement in Beijing for two years at the height of the Cultural Revolution, he became arguably the most publicised prisoner of the Cold War era and the first international political hostage of modern times.
Following the ordeal he went on to establish himself as an international historical novelist focussing particularly on the Far East. His books acclaimed for their meticulous attention to accurate historical detail, have to date been translated into 17 languages and he is perhaps best known for his outstanding epic novel Saigon, published in 1982. The novel won the author great critical acclaim across the USA and Canada as well as in Europe, Australia, South Africa and the Far East.
