About Tristan

Born in London in 1975, Tristan Donovan is a non-fiction author and freelance journalist/editor who planned to become an ecologist before getting distracted by journalism.

His first two books are Replay: The History of Video Games (2010, Yellow Ant) and Fizz: How Soda Shook Up the World (2013, Chicago Review Press). That playing too many video games while drinking too much soda featured heavily in his childhood is just coincidence.

His latest book, Feral Cities: Adventures with Animals in the Urban Jungle (2015, Chicago Review Press), finally put his ecology degree to use.

Tristan has just signed a deal with Thomas Dunne for his board games book – It’s All A Game.

He lives in East Sussex, in the UK, with two ham-obsessed dachshunds.

Testimonials

“Isabel Atherton helped me find the best place for my first picture book – the award winning ‘The Only Child.’ She is not only a experienced and professional book agent, but also a trusted friend, who guides like a friend and shares ideas. The process of book publishing with Isabel was a really sweet and smooth journey for me.”
