Nicholas Gage, is a Greek-born American author and investigative journalist. In the 1970’s he starts working for Associated Press and The Boston Herald Traveller, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. As a reporter for the Times. In 1978, his dispatches from Teheran closely monitored the fall of the Shah of Iran. Demonstrations against the Shah commenced in October 1977, developing into a campaign of civil resistance that included both secular and religious elements and which intensified in January 1978. Between August and December 1978, strikes and demonstrations paralyzed the country. The Shah left Iran for exile on 16 January 1979, as the last Persian monarch, leaving his duties to a regency council and an opposition-based prime minister. He is most known for two books of autobiographical memoirs, the best-selling Eleni (1983) and A Place for Us (1989). Eleni describes the life of his family in Greece during the Second World War and Greek Civil War. Gage’s mother, Eleni, was executed for arranging the escape of her children from their Communist-occupied village. Decades later, as an adult, Gage sought out those responsible for her death.
