Ethan Casey is a veteran international journalist, editor, and author.

His earlier book Alive and Well in Pakistan: A Human Journey in a Dangerous Time (2004) has been called “magnificent” by Ahmed Rashid, author of Taliban and Descent into Chaos, “intelligent and compelling … the insights of a singular, clear-eyed and human traveler” by Booker Prize-shortlisted novelist Mohsin Hamid, and “wonderful … a model of travel writing” by Edwidge Danticat. His follow-up, Overtaken By Events: A Pakistan Road Trip (2010), has been praised as “compulsively readable” by Pakistani novelist Bapsi Sidhwa and “a clear-eyed and sympathetic account of life in this important but much misunderstood country” by Ambassador Akbar Ahmed, Ibn Khaldun Chair of Islamic Studies at American University.
