He has also written for the New Statesman and Tribune and is an occasional talking head on BBC2 and Channel 4. He is a member of honour in the NUJ. Born in Liverpool, raised in Cheshire and Machester, apprenticed as a reporter in Sheffield, he did not go to Oxbridge, has never written a sitcom and nor has he slept with anyone famous. He lives in London and is a dad. This is his first novel.
