John Lucas

words n' stuff


I’m John and I write books. My first one, Turf, came out in August 2012 and was described by (amongst others) the Financial Times as: ‘an exhilarating, tragic tale and a terrific debut’ and by the Observer as: ‘powerful and unsettling.’ My second book, Fire and Sky, is out in early 2015. You can read a little of both of them here on the site, as well as other bits of writing, and find out more about me and what I do. Have a look around!
