About the Author

Susan Zakin was once called "the female environmental Hunter Thompson." A graduate of Columbia University’s journalism school, Zakin is the author of "Coyotes and Town Dogs: Earth First! and the Environmental Movement" (Viking) and "In Katrina’s Wake: Portraits of Loss from an Unnatural Disaster." She edited the anthology "Naked: Writers Uncover the Way We Live on Earth," and her articles and essays have appeared in numerous magazines, newspapers, and literary journals. Her latest book is “The Afterlife of Victor Kamara,” a novel about identity in a globalizing world, or, for the elevator pitch crowd, Entourage with AK-47s. Set in Africa and the U.S., the book’s main character is a young West African army lieutenant who seizes power in a coup only to find himself living as a soccer dad in suburban Virginia. Susan Zakin is the co-founder of nature + culture, an ecotravel business in Lamu, Kenya: www.lamutravel.com.
