Each week, over the next eight, we will be celebrating one of this year’s Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize winning authors.

This week we’re celebrating 2015 winner, Lavie Tidhar who won with his book, A Man Lies Dreaming.

“With this novel Lavie Tidhar mixes hardboiled noir, dystopia and magical realism to create a dark and thought provoking novel, sure to compel the reader whilst making them face the darker sides of humanity. It is a book about war, power, politics and religion whilst being a page turning thriller which gives a new and unusual twist on tales of World War II and the holocaust.”
Simon Savidge, blogger and journalist

Keep an eye out for updates over the coming week and have a read of the first chapter here.
