Paul Torday was born in 1946 and read English Literature at Pembroke College, Oxford. He is married with two sons by a previous marriage and has two stepsons. He has spent most of his life in industry, but in the last three years has found the time to write. For the last fifteen years he has also been a keen salmon fisherman, and as he lives close to the River North Tyne, he has been able to indulge in this enthusiasm. He lives in Northumberland and has often visited the Middle East.

Paul Torday's sparkling debut uses spoof parliamentary papers to tell a splendidly dotty tale" -- SALLY COUSINS SUNDAY TELEGRAPH "Utterly charming and extremely funny" IRISH TIMES
