A world-famous Australian writer, an inspiration to Robert Hughes and Clive James, a legendary war correspondent who also wrote bestselling histories of exploration and conservation … and yet forgotten? In his book Our Man Elsewhere: In Search of Alan Moorehead journalist and writer Thornton McCamish delves into the past to reclaim a remarkable figure.

Moorehead’s story, with its countless adventures, jet-set glamour and its tragic arc is a beguiling one. He talks with author and bookman Stuart Kells.

Shortlisted for the Douglas Stewart non-fiction award in the NSW Premier’s Literary awards.
