Über den Autor: Noel Mostert was born and educated in South Africa. His family, of Dutch-French (Huguenot) origin, became established at the Cape in the earliest days of the settlement there. Mostert himself left South Africa permanently in 1947 at the age of seventeen for Canada, where he became a citizen in 1952. He served as a parliamentary correspondent in Ottawa and military correspondent in Europe for the United Press, and then as a foreign correspondent and New York columnist for the Montreal Star. Mostert subsequently wrote regularly from Europe, Africa and the Middle East for The Reporter, and his articles, essays and short stories appeared in most major U. S. publications. He received several awards for his reportage, including the National Magazine award in 1974 for articles in The New Yorker. In 1974 his first book, Supership, was unanimously chosen to receive the Pullitzer Prize for non-ficiton before being disqualified on grounds of his Canadian citizenship. Noel Mostert lives in Morocco.
