More About the Author

I have been writing about wine, other drinks and restaurants since the beginning of the 1990s. In the past decade, my work has included a widely acclaimed cultural history of intoxication, Out Of It (Penguin) and the multi-disciplinary Humanity: An Emotional History (Atlantic, published in the United States as A Natural History of Human Emotions). My work has been translated into Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Polish, Russian, Chinese and Korean. I write for the Guardian Books site, as well as a number of specialist drink publications and websites, and I review books for World of Fine Wine magazine.

In 2010, after 16 years of living in Brighton, I headed southwest and am now in beautiful Torbay.
