First working as a journalist in South Africa, and then as Tutu's press secretary, John Allen was invited to join the Truth and Reconciliation Commission as Director of Communications in 1995. Next he joined the Archbishop's staff when he taught in Atlanta for two years. Thus he has had a unique opportunity to observe his subject at first hand and is being given complete access to the Archbishop's personal and public files. Already he has been granted a rare one-on-one interview with Mandela for the book. He lives in South Africa.
