‘Many respectable judges would put Edric in the top ten of British novelists currently at work…as a writer, he specialises in the delicate hint and the game not given away.’

An early contender for this year’s Booker Prize, Robert Edric has won several prestigious awards including the James Tait Black Memorial Award and has published twelve novels. He has been acclaimed as one of Britain’s most compelling and talented contemporary novelists. Robert Edric was born in Sheffield in 1956. He completed his doctorate at Hull University and now lives in Hornsea.

‘…a highly talented writer whose books give historical fiction a good name. They are distinguished not only by their formal skill and wide-ranging subject matters, but by their hairless, unshowy prose.’ The Guardian
