Author Bio – Mark Haddon

Hello everyone!

This year I have decided to do a monthly blog about some of my favourite authors. Each month I will be giving a brief outline about them, my favourite book and why I like them. I hope you enjoy the authors I have chosen and hopefully my post will inspire some of you to pick up one of their books. Lets get started!

Name: Mark Haddon

Nationality: British

Genre: Literary Fiction

Favourite Book: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

First Book I Read: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Why I Like Them: I loved The Curious Incident, not just because it was set in my hometown but for how unique it was. Story telling from a child’s POV as an adult is hard but to do it from the POV of a child with autism takes a lot of work. I loved the memorable characters that Mark Haddon created and have since gone on to add others of his books to my collection.

Have you read any of these books? Which was your favourite?
