Über diesen Titel:
Über den Autor: Frank Sinclair grew up in the shadow of Table Mountain, in Cape Town, South Africa, at "the fairest cape in all the circumference of the world", as the circumnavigator Sir Francis Drake described it. After completing his undergraduate studies at the University of Cape Town, he joined the editorial staff of the Cape Times in 1950. During his eight years at the Cape Times, he was a witness to many of the momentous changes taking place under the apartheid regime. In his late 20s, he settled in the United States to pursue his interest in the teaching of G.I. Gurdjieff. While becoming increasingly engaged in the activities of the Gurdjieff Foundation of New York-he was named co-president in 2000 and president in 2005-he also had a successful career in the business world. He has made his home on the waterfront in Grand View on Hudson, some 20 miles north of Manhattan, since 1967.
