About the Author

Jon McGregor published his first novel in Britain in 2002 to critical acclaim, and was inspired in part by the phenomenal media attention that surrounded the death of Princess Diana. He has written numerous short stories leading, in part, to the development of some of his novels. He founded the Nottingham Writer's Studio in 2006 and also taught a course at Arvon. McGregor lives in Nottingham, England.
