He has worked at several magazines and newspapers, and in 1967 founded the Pagurian Press, which eventually became the enormously successful Pagurian Corporation. In 1988 he sold all his business interests and returned to the literary world.

He is the author of seven books including the best-selling Burton biographies "Sindh Revisited" and "Journey to the Source of the Nile".

Sri Lankan ,Sir Christopher Ondaatje the philanthropist, businessman and brother of Michael Ondaatje.
