Check out his Wikipedia bio , or my favorite book – The Glass Palace. Here’s one of his articles from The New Yorker.
Szavanna was born in Hungary and has traveled around in Europe & USA. She spent 1 year in Tunisia learning Arabic (the language and music) and now lives in South Africa with her family.
