Ray Robinson first won attention in 2006 with his debut novel, Electricity (Picador, 2006). It was shortlisted for both the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, and the Authors’ Club First Novel Award. The feature film of Electricity, starring Agyness Deyn as Lily, will be released in the summer of 2014.
Robinson’s other novels are The Man Without (Picador, 2008), Forgetting Zoe (Heinemann, 2010), and Jawbone Lake (Heinemann, 2014).
Forgetting Zoe was selected for the inaugural Fiction Uncovered promotion and was the Observer’s ‘Thriller of the Month’. Robinson was hailed as ‘among the most impressive voices of Britain’s younger generation’ by the Irish Times.
Robinson is a post-graduate of Lancaster University, where he was awarded a Ph.D. in Creative Writing in 2006. He has appeared at literary festivals around the world, including La Feria Internacional del Libro de Guadalajara, Mexico, and the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
