About Robin D. Harris


R obin D. Harris is an acclaimed British author and gender equality campaigner. His debut novel, A Forgotten Survivor, draws on shocking real events that were recorded but not reported in the wake of one of the world's most deadly natural disasters - the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami. It paints a painfully vivid picture of what took place in the tsunami’s aftermath: thieves stripping dead bodies of their valuables; and women and children left at the mercy of a patriarchal society rife with sexual violence and gender inequality. The media describes it as "remarkable" and an "eye-opening fictionalised account of the brutal dangers faced by women when natural disasters strike".
