Alan Warner is one of the leading lights of his generation of Scottish
writers. Born in 1964 he shot to fame with the publication of his
debut novel Morvern Callar in 1995. The book was adapted into a highly
acclaimed film directed by Lynne Ramsay, and Warner has gone on to
publish five more novels to great success. He won the Somerset Maughan
Award for Morvern Callar and the Saltire Society Scottish Book of the
Year Award for his novel The Sopranos.
In 2003 Alan was nominated by Granta magazine as one of twenty ‘Best
of Young British Novelists’. In 2010, his novel The Stars in the
Bright Sky was included in the longlist for the Man Booker Prize. His
seventh novel, The Deadman’s Pedal, is due for publication in May this
year. Alan also currently holds the position of Writer-in-Residence at
the University of Edinburgh.

Hope to see you there!
