About the Author
ALEX WHEATLE was born in Brixton, London. He began writing lyrical poetry and made a name for himself as the Brixton Bard before turning his hand to novels and his first book Brixton Rock is now a cult classic. He is actively involved with Book Trust to introduce literature to the dispossessed and organises workshops in prisons and young adult institutions. He was awarded an MBE for his services to literature in 2008.
"A triumph . . . very funny. "Brixton Rock" is a pacey document of teenage angst . . . This is a debut which confirms its author as a pro in prose." "--The Times"
