About the Author

Rollan Seisenbayev is Kazakhstan's most celebrated and honored author. He played a prominent role in the emergence of Kazakh independence in the aftermath of the breakup of the Soviet Union and was a personal advisor to President Nazarbayev in the crucial early years of the 1990s. He is the author of The Return of Kazybek, Throne of Satan, and The Day the World Collapsed. Considered the founding novel of independent Kazakhstan, where it has sold over a million copies, The Dead Wander in the Desert marks the author's English-language debut.

John Farndon is a Royal Literary Fellow at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, UK, and the author of a huge number of books for adults and children on science, history, technology and nature, including such international best-sellers as Do Not Open and Do You Think You're Clever?
Olga Nakston is from St Petersburg but now lives in London. She has collaborated with John Farndon on many translations of Russian literature, including Ravil Bukharaev's Letters from Another Room, the poetry of Lidia Grigorieva, and Rollan Sesyenbaev's Dead Wander in the Desert. She is currently working on an English translation of Auezov's libretto for Zhubanov's Kazakh opera Abai.
