FAULKS, Sebastian

(1953 - )
"I don't know how you can understand other people or yourself if you haven't read a lot of books"

Faulks read English at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, worked as a teacher and then as a journalist, before becoming the first literary editor of The Independent in 1986. Although he published a couple of novels, A Trick of the Light and The Girl at the Lion d’Or whilst working as a journalist, it wasn’t until the success of Birdsong (published in 1993) that Faulks was able to leave journalism to write as a novelist full-time.  A contemporary review stated that Faulks had “the rare gift of being popular and literary at the same time" – an accolade which surely explains why the Fleming estate commissioned him to write the next James Bond continuation novel – Devil May Care, which became an immediate best seller.  The Guardian wrote of it “Among the now 33 post-Fleming Bonds, this mist surely compete with Kinglsey Amis’s for the title of the best.”
