Henry Porter cover gallery

Henry Porter has been a newspaper columnist for many years. According to the biographical sketches in his books, he "has written for most national broadsheet newspapers. He was editor of the Atticus column on the Sunday Times, moving to set up the Sunday Correspondent magazine in 1988. He contributes commentary and reportage to the Guardian, Observer, Evening Standard and Sunday Telegraph. He is the British editor of the American magazine Vanity Fair and divides his time between New York and London."

His novel Brandenburg won the Ian Fleming Steel Dagger for best thriller of 2005 and his journalism earned him a place on the shortlist for the Orwell Prize for Journalism in 2009. A new novel was due in 2012 but the last time I saw it mentioned in one of his Observer features, he was still writing it.
