Terms by Ben Lyle
Terms is the debut novel by UEA alumnus Ben Lyle and is published by Hookline Books today. Ben has worked in the film industry for the last fifteen years, while also completing the MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) at UEA, from which he graduated in 2010 before going on to complete a PhD in Film and Television, also at UEA. Terms was developed from a short story, ‘Crannock House’, that was written during Ben’s MA and later published in the Fiction Desk anthology Various Authors, for which it won the ‘best in collection’ prize. Ben lives in South London with his partner and their twins. Hookline Books takes submissions only from students and graduates of MA writing courses, who put their work before book groups and other readers for selection, and Terms can be purchased directly from the publisher as well as all other standard outlets.
