Rupert Thomson interview

This post was written by Friday guest blogger Emma Garman. hero and author of The Insult, a novel that will become a classic if the world has any sense, talks to Boyd Tonkin, who remarks that Thomson

has crafted a body of work so singular, flavoursome and captivating that you wonder why his fame has not yet matched his talent. His books remain a kind of open secret, an unlocked garden. Each is a hyper-real hallucination lit by sumptuous prose and fuelled by a prodigal gift for atmosphere and suspense.

Thomson’s new novel Divided Kingdom is already available from Amazon UK, and it’s coming out here in June.
