About the Author

PATRICK GARRETT is Clare Hollingworth's great nephew. He followed his aunt into journalism at an early age, and also ended up attending a fair number of wars and revolutions. Patrick followed Clare to Hong Kong in 1997 to report on its return to Chinese sovereignty. In 2007 Patrick finally started work writing her biography, little expecting that it would take him nearly a decade. But telling the tale of a life as eventful as Clare's, spanning more than a century, he should probably have known better. Patrick divides his time between Hong Kong and Russia.
