"MARSHALL IS A GIFTED WRITER" - NEW YORK TIMES
ANDREW MARSHALL is a Pulitzer Prize-winning British journalist and author.
Marshall spent two decades exploring Asia's remotest places for TIME and other big publications, including National Geographic, Esquire, GQ and The Sunday Times Magazine. In January 2012 he joined Reuters news agency where, as Southeast Asia Special Correspondent, he writes investigative stories about crime, conflict and human rights.
In 2014, he and Reuters colleague Jason Szep won the Pulitzer Prize in International Reporting for what the Pulitzer judges called "their courageous reports on the violent persecution of the Rohingya, a Muslim minority in Myanmar that . . . often falls victim to predatory human-trafficking networks."
In the same year, he and Szep were awarded the prestigious Osborn Elliott Prize For Excellence in Journalism on Asia. Marshall has also won three Society of Publishers in Asia (SOPA) Awards for Editorial Excellence for his reporting for TIME magazine, and four more with his Reuters colleagues.
He is the author of two non-fiction books which have been translated into 10 languages. THE TROUSER PEOPLE was a New York Times Notable Book. He is also co-author of "The Cult at the End of the World," a prescient account of Japan’s homicidal Aum cult and the rise of high-tech terrorism.
He has co-produced three documentaries for Al Jazeera - on cholera epidemics in Bangladesh, military torture in Thailand and drug users in Malaysia and Indonesia - and acted as a consultant on a fourth for Channel 4, about apocalypse culture in Israel, Japan and the U.S.
He lives in Bangkok.
