The author of over thirty books, Jan Morris is perhaps best known for her brilliant travel writing, particularly her portraits of cities such as Oxford, Venice, New York and Sydney and her Pax Britannica trilogy about the decline of the British Empire. Described as the ‘Flaubert of the jet age’ by the late Alistair Cooke, Jan’s work has attracted widespread praise for its insight and intelligence. Born a man, Jan lived the first 46 years of her life as James Morris, marrying in 1949 and fathering five children. As a reporter for The Times, he made his name on the 1953 Everest trip, breaking the story, from Base Camp, that a British expedition had conquered the mountain, on the day before the Queen’s Coronation. In 1972 James completed sex change treatment undergoing surgery. The experience was recounted movingly in the book Conundrum. Today, Jan discusses her extraordinary life and career.
