Tarquin Hall

Tarquin Hall is a British writer and journalist.

He was born in London, 1969, to an English father and American mother. Hall has spent much of his adult life away from the United Kingdom, living in the United States, Pakistan, India, Kenya and Turkey, and travelling extensively in Africa, the Middle East and South Asia. He is the author of three books and dozens of articles that have appeared in many British newspapers and magazines, including the "Times", "Sunday Times", "Daily Telegraph", "Observer" and "New Statesman". He has also worked in TV news and is a former South Asia bureau chief of Associated Press TV. His chosen subject matter has proven extraordinarily diverse. He has written feartures on Wilfred Thesiger, Texan rattlensake hunters, the Taliban and British-Asian Urdu poets. Hall's exclusive reports include a profile on Emma McCune, an English woman who married Southern Sudanese guerilla commander Riek Machar, the draining of Iraq's marshes by Saddam Hussein, and a one-on-one with former Kurdish PKK leader Abdullah Ocalan in a Syrian safehouse.

Hall's books have received wide acclaim in the British press. His second, "To the Elephant Graveyard" was heralded by Christopher Matthew in the "Daily Mail" as "a classic". His third, "Salaam Brick Lane", about Brick Lane in the East End of London, was described by Kevin Rushby in "The Guardian" as "charming, brilliant, affectionate and impassioned."

Hall currently divides his time between the UK and India. He is married to BBC reporter and presenter Anu Anand.
