Tim Butcher is an award-winning journalist, best-selling author and proud supporter of South Africa.
British-born, he has climbed mountains in New Zealand, learnt enough Albanian to smuggle himself into Kosovo during the 1999 war and survived four years living in Johannesburg.
His first book, Blood River - A Journey To Africa's Broken Heart, told the story of an epic journey he made through the Congo. It topped the Sunday Times best-seller list in 2008 and was shortlisted for various awards from the Samuel Johnson Prize in Britain to the Ryszard Kapuściński Award in Poland.
For his new book, Chasing The Devil, he walked for 350 miles through Liberia along a trail blazed by a whisky-sozzled Graham Greene in 1935. He discovered, among other things, that Greene's life was saved there by his indomitable but unsung cousin, Barbara Greene. Chasing the Devil was published in 2010.
As a journalist he led the Daily Telegraph's award-winning reporting team in the 2003 Gulf War and was shortlisted for the prestigious Foreign Press Association reporter of the year award for his coverage of the 2006 Lebanon war. He is a regular contributor to the BBC's prestigious foreign affairs programme, From Our Own Correspondent. He lives in Cape Town with his family.
