"Here is art which conceals art, and intellect which conceals intellect, so that by the end of the book one feels that one understands something one had not understood before. Mr Hall is witty and amusing, but not snide; he has a lightness of touch which allows him to write of extremely serious matters without solemnity; he knows how to convey a great deal in a few words' Sunday Telegraph. 'He is an observant and witty writer...you believe implicitly that he has met the people he writes about, and that they said what he quotes them as saying' Sunday Times
Brian Hall was born in 1959. He grew up in Massachusetts and attended Harvard College. After two years spent travelling in Western and Eastern Europe, he wrote Stealing from a Deep Place: Travels in South-Eastern Europe, and a novel set in Vienna, The Dreamers. From 1989 through 1991 he made several trips to Yugoslavia, in preparation for writing The Impossible Country. He currently lives in Ithaca, New York, with his wife and daughter.
