anna burns was born in Belfast in 1962. She moved to London in 1987. This is her first book.
'Fresh, original shot through with energy and drama right from the start' The Times 'Amelia Lovett is just an ordinary little girl caught up in extraordinary circumstances. No Bones tracks the tragi-comic fortunes of the Lovett family of Belfast - the shrewdly mad mother; malevolent Mick; and dreamy Amelia, our narrator, who records their antics over the years. Anna Burns recreates the dark days beautifully and evokes the spirit of the times with compassion and understanding No Bones gives an insight into a difficult and dangerous period of our history from a refreshing point of view and speaks the truth in a way that only a child can do.' Irish News 'The use of language is stunning, powerful and controlled the story of Amelia's struggle for sanity is compelling.' Daily Telegraph 'This account of a girl's life growing up in Belfast during the Troubles, which examines madness and sanity and questions our interpretation of both, is scary. Scarily well written, too.' Martina Devlin, Irish Independent
