Ioannis Gatsiounis


Gatsiounis is an East Africa-based author and journalist known for his frank and revealing analysis of pressing global issues.

Prior to his arrival on the Continent last year, his trenchant and often prescient commentaries, penned in a climate of restriction and intimidation for publications across the political spectrum, including Newsweek, the International Herald Tribune, Al Jazeera and the Asian Wall Street Journal, secured his reputation as a leading expert on Malaysia. A collection of his reportage and commentaries, Beyond the Veneer, was published in 2008 by Monsoon Books. His fiction debut, Velvet & Cinder Blocks (ZI Publications), ten politically-tinged short stories set about Asia and the West, hit bookshelves in late 2009.
