David Baddiel was born in 1964 in Troy, New York, but grew up and lives in London. He is a comedian, television writer, columnist and author of three previous novels, of which the most recent is The Secret Purposes.
`The Death of Eli Gold is, like it's hero, an impressive and energetic piece of work. Unlike Eli, however, it is tender, rather lovely...And, of course, richly comic. Those who care to read between the one-liners will hear a more serious voice emerge: a maturing writer who may, with his next novel, be ready to throw off his English reserve and dare to attempt a redefinition of the Great Novel himself. Let's hope that he is, because this, his grown-up, fluent and bitingly bright fourth book, is shockingly good.' Melissa Katsoulis, The Times `Remarkable...This is by far his most entertaining and satisfying novel' Mark Sellek, Independent on Sunday `An English as much as an American tale, a comedy as much as an elegy...Heartbreaking' Boyd Tonkin, Independent `The Death of Eli Gold is brilliant, wise, compassionate, satirical, mature, and better than anything Martin Amis has done in decades...This richly textured novel is not to be missed' Roger Lewis, Sunday Express
