My second novel 'The Photographer's Wife' is just out (May
2016, Bloomsbury) in the UK and US. This is what
The New York Times had to say.
My debut novel 'A Lady Cyclist's Guide to Kashgar'
was published by Bloomsbury in 2012. It was a US
National Bestseller, a Guardian/Observer Book of the Year
2012 and translated into 16 languages. It was long-listed
for the International IMPAC Dublin literary award 2014.
I have written for a range of places including The New
York Times, The Guardian, The Telegraph, Independent, Vogue UK, Lonely Planet and many others. I have published
short stories, essays, travel pieces and reviews.
My short story, 'Theory of Flight' was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and an essay 'I've Never Told Anyone This Before...' was broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
In 2011 I was writer in residence at the 1930s Art Deco Shoreham Airport in Sussex. My non-fiction piece LAILA AHMED won a New Writing Ventures prize in 2008.
From 2002-2012 I worked part-time in the literature department of the British Council travelling regularly in the Middle East, China, Russia and Western and Eastern Europe. I have worked in and explored Yemen, Egypt, Syria, Greece and many other countries.
I now write full-time and travel as much as I can. I live with with my husband, two tiny children and a scruffy dog in a small seaside town in Sussex, England. I am currently the Writer-in-Residence at the wonderful Weald and Downland Open Air Museum in West Sussex and can often be found wafting around the South Downs National Park. I sometimes tweet at @suzyjoinson.
