Arnie Wilson

Arnie Wilson

Although Arnie Wilson comes from an artistic background (his father, Bernard, was a composer who met his wife Joan, a concert pianist, at London’s Wigmore Hall where they were both featured in a concert) he has inherited few of their talents. ‘I failed to learn the French horn, my favourite instrument, but did manage to play the flute in the Canterbury Youth Orchestra for a while,’ he says. It was as a journalist rather than as a flautist that Wilson made his mark. He spent 15 years in television – on screen for 10 of them – and several years in Fleet Street, before becoming the Financial Times ski correspondent and skiing every day of the year in 1994 (thus entering the Guinness Book of Records). He also wrote regularly for the FT, occasionally interviewing celebrities for the paper’s ‘Lunch With The FT’ feature.

In 2001 he became editor of Ski+board, the Ski Club of Great Britain’s magazine.
Wilson, who has four skiing daughters from his first marriage, is the author of several books. Big Name Hunting is the first that is not about skiing. He and his Swedish wife, Vivianne – who were married on the mountain at Jackson Hole, Wyoming in 2000 – live in West Sussex, England.

Amna Agib (bit Nafisa)

About Amna Agib (bit Nafisa)

The author is an ordinary woman who has not necessarily suffered in the same way her characters have. However, she tasted a not dissimilar pain. She lived squeezed by the nasty sensation of feeling an outsider. She’s travelled across cities and places and occupied many professions to find herself, yet she didn’t feel she quite belonged to somewhere and in some way.
Writing about people’s suffering may be her destiny and her remedy.

An interview with Amna in November 2018.
