Amanda Craig


Novelist, Short story writer, Critic, Journalist

A “state of the nation novelist” Amanda Craig has been compared to Dickens, Balzac, Trollope and Evelyn Waugh. Her most recent novel, The Lie of the Land was called the first Brexit novel by the Guardian, but is really about the divide between the city and the amanda_craigcountry, and about the interplay between money and marriage. A BBC Radio 4 Book at Bedtime, it is currently being developed for TV serialisation.
