About the Author
Alexander Fiske-Harrison is a British author, journalist, conservationist, bull-runner and former amateur bull-fighter. He grew up in England before moving to Spain in his 30s. He studied large mammal zoology and animal behaviour at the University of Oxford and foundations of biology and animal consciousness as a postgraduate at the University of London. Researching for a book, he trained - pictured below - as a bullfighter in Andalusia with matadors including Juan José Padilla, Cayetano Rivera Ordóñez and Eduardo Dávila Miura. The book Into The Arena: The World Of The Spanish Bullfight was shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book Of The Year Award 2011. His story of 1950s Paris and Pamplona, 'Les Invincibles', was shortlisted for The Hemingway Prize 2016 in France. In Spain, he has been invited as speaker at the Foundation of Taurine Studies, at the University of Seville and for the Ambassador of Spain to the United Kingdom and is a member of the Foundation of the Fighting Bull in Madrid. He has written and spoken on the world of the bulls for national and international media including The Times, The New York Times, Newsweek, GQ magazine, the BBC, CNN, and the Discovery Channel. He first ran with the bulls in Pamplona in 2009 and, with the exception of 2010 - when he was bullfighting in Andalusia - he has run every year since in the encierros, 'bull-runs', of San Fermín, as well as those of other towns across Spain including San Sebastián de los Reyes (Madrid), Cuéllar and Medina del Campo (Castile and León), Estella, Funes, Santacara, Tafalla and Falces (Navarre). --This text refers to the paperback edition.
