Sam Byers named as one of ‘Five young novelists for 2013’
Current UEA student Sam Byers is profiled today in the Daily Telegraph as one of ‘five young novelists for 2013’, in anticipation of the publication of his first novel, ‘Idiopathy’. Sam completed his MA in Creative Writing at UEA in 2003 and is currently undertaking a PhD in Creative and Critical Writing under the supervision of Giles Foden. ‘Some Other Katherine’, an extract from the novel, was included in the most recent issue of Granta magazine, whose theme was ‘Britain’. ‘Idiopathy’ will be published by Fourth Estate in April.
