About Me

I am the author of four novels, The Disappearance of Adèle Bedeau (2014), the Booker shortlisted His Bloody Project (2015) and The Accident on the A35 (2017) and Case Study (2021).

His Bloody Project has been published in over 20 languages including German, Russian, Chinese, French, Spanish, Farsi and Estonian.

I was named Author of the Year in the Sunday Herald Culture Awards 2017 and have appeared at festivals and events in Edinburgh, Seoul, Los Angeles, New York, Adelaide, Macau, Estonia, Moscow, Cheltenham, Berlin, Lyon, Paris, Glasgow, London, Ullapool and many other places. I’ve also written the occasional piece for The Guardian, The Observer and Le Monde.

I was born in Kilmarnock in Scotland and now live in Glasgow. I’ve previously lived and worked in Prague, Porto, Bordeaux and London.

My story Wolverine Blues, or a Case of Defiance Neurosis, based on a case history by Alphonse Maeder, is currently BBC Sounds. You can listen to the first episode here
