Amanda Craig is the author of eight novels, including the recently published The Lie of the Land. Often compared to Dickens, Trollope, Thackeray and Balzac, she writes interlinked novels about modern life, which combine satire, social comedy, romance and serious issues such as immigration, creativity and murder. Formerly an award-winning journalist, she was children’s books critic of The Times and still reviews for The New Statesman, among other publications.
