Ian Sansom regularly contributes to the Guardian, the London Review of Books and Poetry Review. He lives with his family in Northern Ireland. His first book THE TRUTH ABOUT BABIES was published by Granta in 2002, and his first novel RING ROAD was published by Fourth Estate in the UK and US.
THE CASE OF THE MISSING BOOKS was published by Fourth Estate in 2006, the first of Ian’s current MOBILE LIBRARY series of comic novels set in Northern Ireland. MR DIXON DISAPPEARS was published later in 2006; THE DELEGATE'S CHOICE in January 2008 and THE BOOK STOPS HERE in August 2008. Ian is currently at work on a further six novels to complete the series. Ian has recently started work on a new series, also for Fourth Estate, THE NORFOLK COUNTY MYSTERIES.
'Funny, brave, touching and true: the exhaustion, shock and queasy compromise of new parenthood are evoked by Sansom with terrifying honesty — but all parents everywhere will recognise that it's really a book about love.' - Julie Myerson on THE TRUTH ABOUT BABIES.
‘Sansom has a talent for demonstrating how the fantastic can grow quite naturally out of the familiar. Few books published these days can fairly be described as charming and fewer still are the product of so generous an intelligence ... It’s mellow, intelligent and very funny, a perfect antidote for melancholy.’ Michael Moorcok on RING ROAD in the Guardian.
