A. L. Kennedy
A. L. Kennedy is one of Scotland’s foremost contemporary writers of novels, short stories, and film and radio scripts. She is also a stand-up comic—and if the cheeky FAQ’s on her website are any indication, her act is well worth checking out. Her short story collections include the multi-award-winning Night Geometry and the Garscadden Trains, Original Bliss and What Becomes; among her award-winning novels are So I Am Glad, Everything You Need and Day. Her new novel, The Blue Book, is a love story that involves a fake medium.
