John Baxter


John Baxter is a renowned novelist, lecturer and broadcaster as well as a highly acclaimed film critic and film biographer. His subjects have included Woody Allen, Steven Spielberg, Stanley Kubrick and Von Sternberg.

He has also had a lifelong passion for book collecting, which led him to write a best-selling memoir of his life as a collector, A Pound of Paperin which he also explores the exploding market in first editions. In his enchanting memoir, The Most Beautiful Walk in the World  (May 2011), John remembers his year-long experience of giving “literary walking tours” through his beloved Paris, where he has lived since 1989.

John's latest book, Paris at the End of the World: The City of Light During the Great War 1914-1918, brilliantly brings to life one of the most dramatic and fascinating periods in the city's history, and is published by HarperCollins in April 2014.
