About the Author

Gwendoline Riley was born in 1979 and has published four novels- Cold Water, which won a Betty Trask Award, Sick Notes, Joshua Spassky, which was shortlisted for the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize and won the Somerset Maugham Award, and Opposed Positions.


"Riley writes with a kind of defeated ecstasy" -- Leo Robson * Sunday Times *
"Scrupulous performance" -- Kate Webb * Times Literary Supplement *
"Although she works on a small canvas, Riley's work is both intricate and expansive. Her prose is a continual joy to read, and the detail immensely satisfying: she can squeeze more resonance out of a misplaced apostrophe than others can from baroque, technicolour trauma" -- Stuart Kelly * Scotland on Sunday *
"Never less than enthralling" * Bookmunch *
"Riley's appetite for risk-taking and vinegary apercus remains undiminished" -- Emma Hagestadt * Independent *
