Acerbic British travel journalist A.A. Gill is also a TV and restaurant critic for London’s Sunday Times and a contributing editor for Vanity Fair, GQ, and Gourmet Traveller. But, most importantly, he’s a professional muckraker.
The Edinburgh-born, London-raised Scotsman turns astute observations into the printed word, yet his caustic, deconstructionist pen often gets him into trouble. From his London base, surrounded by proper English decorum, Gill’s Scottish directness punctures protocol and raises hackles. Or, more strategically, in the age of the internet, sells newspapers and magazines.
