  • Mick Jackson

    Mick Jackson is the prize winning author of the novels, The Underground Man, Five Boys and The Widow's Tale. He also published, with the illustrator David Roberts, two acclaimed curiosities, Ten Sorry Tales and Bears of England.

“[An] unconventional. highly readable, often very funny and strangely touching novel. Since winning the Authors' Club Best First Novel prize with The Underground Man (1997), Mick Jackson's work has been increasingly characterised by a perceptive humanity, laced with sly wit and presented with irresistible dynamism, and this is no exception ... It's the kind of book you can't stop reading but don't want to finish.”
- Sue Gaisford, Financial Times
“Jackson is a superb writer with a gift for dialogue.”
- Paula Byrne, The Times
