Glow by Ned Beauman

I don’t often read new novels… but, when I do, they’re by authors on Granta’s Best Young Authors list. In Issue 1 of Shiny New Books I reviewed and interviewed Helen Oyeyemi; in Issue 2, I have done the same with Ned Beauman.

Following on from loving his first two novels (Boxer, Beetle and The Teleportation Accident), I also really liked his third, Glow; review over at Shiny New Books. As before, you wouldn’t have thought I’d enjoy the book by looking at its ingredients – sex, drugs, and clubbing, basically, but with virtual reality twists – but Beauman is such an imaginative and inventive writer that it works.

He kindly agreed to do a quick Q&A too. Do go and have a look!

    Thanks for this – just ordered one of these for a relative whose tastes are sometimes tricksy to buy for!
