Tom Bamforth is a writer and aid worker who has worked on development and humanitarian programs in Pakistan, Sudan, Philippines, Nepal and the Pacific. His writing has appeared in Granta, Griffith Review and The Age.
He is the author of Deep Field: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Aid Relief.
“He’s also one hell of a storyteller and wordsmith: astute, descriptive, ironic, funny and philosophical. As Australian argue over the reductive logic of ‘Stopping the Boats’, Bamforth illuminates the intricacies and entanglements of history, politics and self-interest and introduces us to the eccentrics who keep ploughing through it all for a better world. Verdict: Astonishing"
“It reads as if Don Delillo had been sent to Darfur”
