Based in Washington, DC
I'm Dan Morrison, author of The Black Nile, a first-person account of my 3,600-mile journey down the Nile River through Uganda, Sudan, and Egypt. I'm a veteran journalist with an eye for unbeaten tracks. My reporting has taken me from barbeques with the Latin Kings street gang to ride-alongs with the police assassins of Bombay.
The Black Nile was praised by the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times, and the Washington Post said "it's packed with narrow scrapes, humor and brazen feats of sheer adventure, all set against a brilliantly described backdrop."
Based in New York and Washington, DC, I love speaking with audiences about The Black Nile -- and about the Ganges River, my current work in progress -- and have given talks at the New York Public Library, the Asia Society, the Kolkata (Calcutta) Book Fair, and at colleges, bookstores and bars.
