About Book

Skin was Tobias Hill's stunning first collection of stories. The long title story, 'Skin', explores the Japanese underworld - an expansive tale of tattoos and acid and murder. In 'No One Comes Back from the Sea' a young father can't eradicate the ghostly memories of his little twins who have died; in 'Honeymoon in Los Angeles', two Japanese newlyweds experience an early souring of their relationship; in 'Brolly' a group of young children dare each other in a game of depravity while their parents sip drinks under parasols. These are stories which are fresh, incisive and innovative.
  • About Tobias Hill

    Tobias Hill was born in London. In 2003 the TLS nominated him as one the best young writers in Britain: in 2004 he was selected as one of the country's Next Generation poets and shortlisted for the Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year. His collection of stories, Skin, won the Pen-Macmillan Prize for Fiction and was shortlisted for the John Llewellyn Rhys/Mail on Sunday Prize. The Cryptographer, his third novel, led AS Byatt to observe that 'Hill is one of the two or three most original and interesting young novelists working in Britain today.' His fourth novel, The Hidden, was published in 2009 to great critical acclaim.
