Michael Jacobs


Everything is Happening

The Robber of Memories



Granta Publications is deeply saddened to learn of the death of one of its longstanding and much-loved authors, Michael Jacobs.

Michael wrote thoughtful, beautifully written books that explored his interest in Spain, South America, travel, art and history. He was one of the most loyal and friendly of men, and spread his bonhomie widely. He will be much missed by everyone who knew him as well as those who have been touched by his books.

Granta Books published two of Michael's books, <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">Andes (2010) and <i style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">The Robber of Memories (2012), and we very much hope to publish his latest, but unfinished, book <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">Everything is Happening in 2015.

Michael Jacobs was born in Italy and studied art history in London and the US. He is the author of several travel books and was shortlisted for the 2004 Thomas Cook Travel Book Prize and the 2013 Dolman Travel Book Award. He lived in Spain and London. He died in January 2014.
