Andrew Blackman is a British-born award-winning novelist.
His first novel, On the Holloway Road, won the Luke Bitmead Writer’s Bursary, was shortlisted for the Dundee International Book Prize, and was described by the Daily Mail as having “echoes of Jack Kerouac in this freewheeling adventure down the CCTV-ed, drizzly corridors of modern Britain.”
His second, A Virtual Love, was shortlisted for the People’s Book Prize, and was described by author James Miller as “a compelling and very entertaining look at the complexities of our hyper-real age.”
Blackman’s articles, essays and short stories have been published in a wide variety of newspapers, journals and collections, including The Wall Street Journal, Monthly Review, the Cincinnati Post, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Seattle Times, Tampa Tribune, Toronto’s Globe and Mail, Post Road and others.
He has been a guest speaker at the London School of Economics and other universities, and has appeared on BBC radio.
Blackman is currently travelling full-time around Europe with his wife, Genie.
