INTERVIEW | John Barlow | Award-winning Author


In this episode of British Murders, I welcome John Barlow to the show.⁣

 

After leaving school, John worked as a cabaret musician for several years, then read English Literature at Cambridge University, followed by postgraduate research into Language Acquisition at Hull University.

 

He then worked as a university teacher until 2004 before moving to Spain to write full-time.

 

John's first published work, the novella 'Eating Mammals', won the Paris Review's Discovery (Plimpton) Prize in 2002.

 

Apart from writing fiction, John has also worked as a ghostwriter, journalist and translator.

 

He has written for The Washington Post, Slate.com, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Penthouse, Departures Magazine and The Big Issue, and was a feature writer for the award-winning food magazine Spain Gourmetour.

 

John's latest book, 'To the Grave', released on May 26, 2022, is the second in his new crime series featuring English-Sicilian detective Joe Romano and is set in the north of England.
