About the Author

Larry Collins was born in West Hartford, Connecticut. After graduating from the Loomis School and Yale University, he served in the US Army at SHAPE (Supreme Headquarters, Allied Powers, Europe) outside Paris, where he met Dominique Lapierre, with whom his name is associated in five major international bestsellers. Collins later became a journalist with United Press International in Paris, Rome and the Middle East, where he joined Newsweek as its Middle East correspondent in 1958. During the course of two turbulent years, he covered ten coup d'etats or violent upheavals in his area and was described in national advertising by his employers as "the correspondent who always managed to be in a country just as a revolution or coup d'etat was about to break out - including one in the Dominican Republic when he was supposed to be on vacation." In April 1961, he returned to Paris as the Newsweek Bureau Chief. During his Newsweek years, his cover story subjects included the Shah of Iran, Charles DeGaulle, Fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent and the death of Pope John XXIII. In the summer of 1962, Larry teamed up with Dominique Lapierre on the first of their internationally known bestsellers - Is Paris Burning?, which was followed by four others, all fantastically successful. Larry has subsequently written three others bestsellers, equally as successful, and his most current, Tomorrow Belongs To Us is published in March. Larry Collins is an avid skier and tennis player. He and his wife have two grown up sons and divide their time between properties in London, France and the US. Larry Collins was born in West Hartford, Connecticut.
