His stories tackle everything from the asset-stripping that has devastated working communities to torture and resistance, to a military dictatorship.

In the words of novelist AS Byatt, his prose is poetic and incisive, while poet and critic the late Anthony Thwaite described John’s work as “Tolstoyan”.

John, a life fellow at Emmanuel College, where he previously directed English studies, said: “I’m quite pleased because I haven’t been able to be a full-time novelist because I’ve been teaching, so I take a certain time with my novels. It’s nice to see them all together.”

John is currently working on a sixth novel, which he hopes to have ready by around Christmas time. Holland House Books has republished all of John’s previous novels both in print and digitally.
