J.J. Ward

Biography

J.J Ward lives and works in southern England and has been married for 33 years. He has two grown-up boys and a dog called Arthur Perrins. His hobbies include walking in the countryside, drinking tea in unusual locations, photography, and reading.

His favourite contemporary writers are Jonathan Franzen, Jennifer Egan and Magnus Mills, but mostly he thinks the novel has been damaged by the dominance of literary fiction. "On TV, we've become used to the idea of multifaceted genre narratives - The Killing, for example, The Wire, or Spiral - but novel-writers are expected to save depth and complexity mainly for Pulitzer-friendly undertakings. The intricacy of The Corrections, Middlesex and 1Q84 - of theme, characterisation and plot - now needs importing into thrillers and romances."
