John Righten

John has delivered medical aid to orphanages and hospitals across the globe, including Romania during the revolution, South America and Bosnia during the war. His autobiography, The Benevolence of Rogues, tells of the characters he encountered during his many dangerous missions, when he enlisted unlikely support from those he calls 'benevolent rogues'. These men and women used their wit and guile to deliver medical aid and help save lives. Thirty years later, he decided to weave these extraordinary stories into his thrilling novel, "Heartbreak".

A tempestuous love story in the midst of a failed revolution. It's impact was immediate when I read this in Berlin, just before the wall started to crumble.

No finer example of surrealist humour, with a paper-cutting political edge too.

An extraordinary man, who's pain is etched on every page. Sadly, the strength and will that helped Levi survive the holocaust, could not last the peace.

A flawed hero, but it showed that compassion existed even when evil prevailed.

The film is brilliant, the novel is even better. That's how good it is.

Hilarious and honest as you would expect, and worth it alone for the final paragraph.
